Let Me Tell You a Story Jack - Storytelling Bristol

Another full house this month, hooray!

In addition to a fantastic turnout and lovely audience, we also had a bumper edition of stories from old friends and newcomers alike.

Our crowned storytelling king Sven read us the first chapter of his novel after a year of delighting us with his travel anecdotes at every show, we had a wonderful piece about measuring success from Natalie Burns, Shonette told us about a surreal spooky hen do she went on, and we also had some short snippet stories from Amy, Simon and Matt.

Our prize winners this month were Thomas David Parker and L.E.Turner, with their respective tales of scary spidery writing god Anansi, and rabid, radioactive badgers.
