Stories mean prizes!

Posted on Updated on

One week left until our next storytelling evening on 9th July – have you thought about what you will share with us?

We love stories in all forms, whether it’s your most cringe-worthy dating anecdote, a short story or poem you’ve written, a song for your favourite person or a rap about your cat. Remember that all performers will get a free drink!

To make things even more exciting, we’re having some prizes on the night too! Get your thinking caps on for stories you can enter in the following categories:

– Best Travel Anecdote
– Claim to Fame
– “The First Time I…”

You don’t even have to go on stage – you can write it down and pass it to the hosts on the night and have it read out for you.

There will also be games, free sweets and songs from our wonderful host Will on the night – it’s the best entertainment you’ll find on a Wednesday night, plus it’s free entry!

Next Event: Weds 9th July

Posted on

Good news, storytelling fans! Our next show is on Wednesday 9th July at The Crofters Rights, so you have time to think of whether you’ll bring us a song about your fridge contents, a poem about your cat, an illustration of your favourite coffee spot or a short story you wrote whilst you were on jury duty.

Mark the date in your diary now, and let us know that you’re coming and if you’re telling a story on our Facebook page.

In the mean time, if you’re missing Will and his lyrical prowess, here he is with a ditty about rambling.

May 1st Event: Corporate Bullsh*t

Posted on Updated on

We’ve all had to endure management speak, training days, team building, office politics and water cooler gossip. Now is your chance to tell us the best and worst of your office experiences, in whatever way you see fit.

Regale us with tales of your worst interview, sing us a song about that ill-fated office romance, or maybe just draw us a really nice pie chart.

However, the theme is NOT COMPULSORY, so feel free to bring along any stories or creative work you want to share, or just come along to be entertained.

Optional dress code: disgruntled office worker.

The next storytelling event has been confirmed for Wednesday 19th February, and we will be bringing a Film Noir theme to The Crofter’s Rights from 7pm!

Expect fedora hats, hip flasks, tiny pistols, braces, cagey detectives and shifty broads – along with some fun games and clever songs from your host.

The theme is not compulsory – feel free to dress up and tell your own crime or detective story, or just entertain us with any other fun anecdotes, songs or poems you want to share.

Tell your friends, prepare your stories and we’ll see you on the 19th!
