We’re back and better than ever in our new home, The Cloak and Dagger!

Join us for an evening of variety storytelling, where you can share your story in any format you like – anecdote, poem, song, spoken word, rap, doodle or interpretive dance.

Seeing as our event falls the day after April Fool’s Day, we thought it apt to go with the theme ‘Foolish Behaviour’, so start thinking about which tales you’ll tell…

16th July – By the Seaside

Posted on

We’re back for another evening of open mic variety storytelling, and this time the optional theme is ‘By the Seaside’.

We want to hear your tales of family holidays, youthful escapades, boat trips, local characters and coastal adventures. Maybe you grew up in a seaside town, or visited every summer? Perhaps you’re a cliffside rambler, or had a penchant for penny machines?

Whether it’s an anecdote, poem, flash fiction, rap or stand up routine, we want your stories, tragic or funny, nostalgic or nightmarish. Or just come to listen!

14th May – Festivals and Music

Posted on

Which song conjurs up a very strong memory for you? Were you in a teenage band project you want to tell us about, an obsessive pop idol fan, or do you want to share your adventures from Glastonbury 1998?

Whether it’s in the form of a short story, song, rap, anecdote or poem, we want to hear your music-inspired tales, from dusty basements to colourful festivals, bedroom dancing to life-changing concerts.

12th March – Mayhem and Madness

Posted on

Have you ever had a situation rapidly spiral out of control, or ended up in quite the pickle of your own making? Maybe you momentarily lost your mind in the throes of young love, or found it hard to keep your temper during a confrontation.

Share your tales of chaos and insanity in whatever form you like – short story, poem, song, interpretive dance, haiku, or crudely-drawn doodle. As long as it’s a story and within the five minute limit, you’re in, or just come to listen!

15th January – Status and Reputation

Posted on

Time to stick it to the man! Or something.

We want to know what you’ve gained notoriety for, when you stood up to the powers that be, or when you’ve been acutely aware of your place in a hierarchy.

Have you ever had a reputation among your peers? Was it good or bad? And how did it come about? Or maybe you’ve gone from zero to hero in a situation – whatever it is, we want to hear about it.

Tell you story in whatever format you like – flash fiction, anecdote, poem, rap, song, or bawdy limerick.

Entry is free, and our two top storytellers will receive a free drink and the much sought-after Let Me Tell You a Story, Jack medals!

Bring your tales and your friends, you’re more than welcome to just listen and support our storytellers if you’d rather not go up to the mic.
