Open mic nights begin Thursday at Artful Dodger

Langley’s Artful Dodger pub in Fernridge is opening its stage to all comers.

Beginning on April 17 — and every Thursday thereafter — aspiring performers are invited to head down to the pub, at 2364 200 St., step onto  the stage and strut their stuff.

“No matter if it’s music or comedy, the mic is open to all,” said organizer Roger Potter.

The event runs from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. each week, but Potter, who has been operating open mic nights in the Valley since 1996, urges performers to arrive early to reserve a spot.

Sign up begins at 6:30 p.m.

Because the event takes place in a licensed pub, participants must be 19 or older.
