What would be your Mastermind topic? Which subject causes you to reel off a long list of trivia to your disinterested friends in the pub?

We want to know your life-long obsessions, your teenage fandoms, your amazing hidden skills and obscure fascinations – share a story, reel off some facts, show us your party trick, or maybe sing us a song on the A-Z of your specialist subject.

Or what are the biggest lessons you’ve learned since in the University of Life?

What is your most memorable meal? When you cooked for the first time? How you accidentally gave your first love food poisoning? Is it a treasured memory of learning how to bake from your granny, or maybe a meal shared on your travels?

Entry is free, plus we’ll be giving out sweets, cake & other birthday paraphernalia (feel free to bring us a card or a present…), and all storytellers will get a free drink, how nice is that eh?

Friday 25th September – Our 2nd birthday party!

Posted on Updated on

Will in his traditional folk garb

Unbelievably, it’s been two years since we first lit up the stage of the very new (so new in fact, that it didn’t even have its license yet) Crofters Rights, and in that time we’ve met lots of people, heard some incredible stories and been treated to an array of weird and wonderful songs from Will.

Join us on the 25th September for an extra special night of storytelling – in addition to all the usual sweets, medals and shenanigans we’ll also have some special prizes, party tat and maybe even cake!

Pete Sutton reads his chilling story to our extensive audience

We’re really proud of the fun & supportive community we’ve created in the past 24 months, and it’s been amazing to see so many of you start off as nervous first-timers and then go on to be regular performers across the writing circuit, so hopefully you can make it along to celebrate with us.

Bring your best stories about birthdays, parties and celebrations – or just tell us about your best experiences at Let Me Tell You a Story, Jack! (it can’t just be us getting all nostalgic). As usual all storytellers get a free drink.

Facebook event (if that’s your thing) – www.facebook.com/events/1658212924414079/1668393516729353/

We hope to see you there!

Wednesday 14th January – Folk Tales and Festivals!

Posted on Updated on

This month we’re going full-on with the festivities and folk tales, as Will & Shonette unearth a long forgotten traditional winter festival to brighten up your dreary January! Think Morris Dancers, Druids, Maypoles, The Wicker Man, Glastonbury, The Winter Solstice…

In addition, we’ll be once again giving out prizes for the best stories, so start thinking of what you’ll share with us. You could read us a short story, play us a nice tune, do some stand up comedy, perform a poem, or just tell us your favourite holiday anecdote. Prizes are in the categories of:

– Folk Tales
– Festivals & Holidays

But you can perform about any topic you like on the night – maybe if it’s good enough you’ll get a prize anyway 😉

Thanks again to Ink Spills Inc for a very very cool poster. See you all on the 14th!

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.
