Join local performance artists for stories, songs and poems about overcoming adversity, the dark and the light, what lifts us up and inspires us, who embraces us and reminds us that we're not walking this Earth path alone.

Let us entertain and enlighten you on this "Alternative Night Out" as our words and lyrics warm your Heart, nourish your Soul, nurture you with recognition as we reflect back to you your own inner light.

May this creative sharing, in community, keep us bright and connected, a boon against the melancholy that the darker months can bring... 

There'll be a refreshment and toilet break mid way, a chance to connect and chat with like-minded folk and the opportunity at the end to ask the performance artists questions or share any revelations that may arise for you throughout the evening.

This is an intimate Venue -  Only 25 ticket sales in total - 3 admission options available - Please pay what you can genuinely afford 🙏🏼

Admission includes refreshments - There's access to a toilet throughout the night.

Seating is relaxed, cosy and informal with a mixture of chairs, cushions, bolsters and blankets.

We look forward to sharing with you on our first ever "Saturday Night at The OM".

THE LINE UP

Headlining: 11th Bard of Northampton, Kezzabelle Ambler

Kezzabelle Ambler is a published performance poet who playfully weaves her wit, wisdom and humour into her one-woman spoken word show 'Permission To Love Yourself’.

She loves expressing & connecting through her 'Weaving Words' creative writing workshops too, giving people ‘Permission To Speak’ (her 5th book & audio).

Kezzabelle wrote her first poem age 12, her teacher graded her work A+ but then crossed it out, writing underneath 'is this aĺl your own work?' Kezzabelle didn’t write another poem for over 30 years! The first poem written as an adult was simply her trying to work her life stuff out at a difficult time. The poem 'Complicated Love' was so revealing to herself that she hid it. Pouring her thoughts, feelings and observations onto the page has helped her through a break down, divorce and very challenging situations. Her pen has literally become 'a tool for life' which is why she's so passionate about helping others to do the same.

The shy little girl now openly shares life experiences connecting through her poetry which ranges from sassy, sensual, spiritual, raw, marvellous and sometimes down right mischievous!

Kezzabelle performs and tours around the country baring all in her craft, aiming to bless & encourage whoever crosses her path. Her love of people & words is boundless.

Introducing... Singer songwriter, Lootie Johansen-Bibby.

Lootie is so happy to be sharing some music and songs with you and we are so happy to have her performing live for you here @The OM. There is a beautiful heartfelt and healing resonance to Lootie's voice that for sure will find its way to bless many.

The arts, creativity and healing have always been central in Lootie’s life and work. After a youth in dance, she trained as a movement artist, creative facilitator and expressive arts psychotherapist.

For 15 years, Lootie has worked with professionals, children and communities to facilitate theatre and performance. She then worked as a therapist with children in nurseries and schools, with adults in mental health and in the community.

In 2016, Lootie had a head injury which changed the course of her life, and facilitated her journey back to herself, to spirituality and nature. She continues to deepen her relationship with her embodied Self and the earth through yoga, sound and song, and tending a garden and allotment.

Music has become an increasingly important part of Lootie’s healing and her way of connecting. She sings regularly in a medicine and mantra circle at The OM Studio, where she has increased in confidence, connection and joy.

Your Compère: Rachael "Raye" White aka poet and storyteller The Bendy Witch.

Having loved writing as a kid because she was painfully shy and found it very difficult to express herself verbally, Raye randomly started writing Poetry again during an anxiety attack in the London Underground in 2014, whilst mid way through an Authentic Success Coaching program with Dr Robert Holden. She got to read out her poem “Dancing In-Between the I’s” and it was received with a standing ovation! An unexpected success indeed.

In 2015 she ended up in Spain for 6 months and became a Monk teaching Meditation for a few years. However, the poetry flood gates had opened and the “Poetry Pixies” persisted in pestering her until she rather surprisingly started performing her poems at Scribal Gathering in 2019. She’s been a regular performer for “Ode to the Siren” as part of the Stony Live festival.

Raye is a senior Yoga teacher, teaching at Whitespace Yoga Studio in Milton Keynes and also runs her own Blossom Yoga business offering online classes and Shamanic therapies from her boat in Northampton, as well as in-person workshops and retreats.

A modern day Mystic, she loves writing about the Magickal, the Mystical and the Mundane. In 2022 she started “The Silent Revolution” to help people reconnect with their most authentic selves and find more Joy in their Hearts and their everyday mundane existence. She wishes to bring people together not just in the Silence through Meditation, but in Heartfelt connection, through their shared stories, songs and poems.. And so here we are experiencing a wish being fulfilled in Saturday Night @ The OM.
