An open mic night to celebrate the best of music and singing talent in Doncaster has been launched at The Leopard.

Each week open mic night at the concert venue will give up and coming singers the chance to test out their performance skills in front of a live audience and to enable punters to see what they have to offer.

Performances at the West Street venue start at 4pm and last until 7pm each Sunday.

If you want to play and to book a slot contact the organisers of the open mic sessions at email address.

The sessions make use of a full professional PA system to give singers and players the best sound possible.

All kinds of performers are welcome to go along to the open mic nights including small acoustic groups as well as solo performers and originals and cover artists who are always welcome.

The West Street venue is a concert destination for live acoustic music and also covers folk, blues, rock and Indie from emerging and established acts.

Up and coming acts at The leopard include eclectic three-piece heavy rock band Willie and the Bandits tonight, with their drum, lap steel guitar and double bass rocking sound.

On March 20 The band From County Hell will perform. The five-piece Celtic rock band is fronted by Steve McLelland and features traditional Celtic instruments and sounds including melodic voices, fiddle, whistle and accordion.
