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.

26th October: Good Ideas vs Bad Ideas

Posted on Updated on

“If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.” – well, that’s what Albert Einstein said anyway, so we want to hear your tales of good ideas gone awry, or poorly-thought-out plans which led to something glorious.

Maybe you decided to make a life-sized penguin out of papier-mache, or book a last minute ticket to Cambodia – but what happened next?

Bring your short stories, poems, songs and anecdotes to share, or just come to listen. Entry is free, we’ll give out free sweets, and every storyteller gets a free drink – hurrah!

Let us know you’re coming on the Facebook event.
