2024 Festival Dates: 6 & 7 July


Developed by The People Speak, Talkaoke is a pop up talk show where anyone can sit down and air their views around the table of chat.



Talkaoke is a live, television-style talk show and consists of an illuminated round table with a host sitting in the centre. Participants sit around the outside and are passed the microphone whenever they want to talk, coming and going as they please.



Facilitating conversations across the community, Talkaoke is a journey from one unexpected subject to another. It can be topical, funny, deep, out-there, or all of the above.

Talkaoke is a unique way to hear the latest ideas people are talking about and to discover new ones together.
