This time we’re taking inspiration from Easter (alleged) resurrections and spring cleans – it’s time to hear about what’s new and exciting!
We want to hear your tales of trying something new, getting out of your comfort zone, or just starting a new chapter in your life. Or maybe you just want to tell us about the inception of an idea, or a burgeoning relationship.
Bring us your stories, poems, songs, raps, illustrations and interpretive dance – we love storytelling in all its weird and wonderful forms! Or just come to listen and support our brilliant performers.
***A FREE DRINK FOR STORYTELLERS*
Let us know you’re coming on the Facebook event, and tell your mates too!
We’re marking the most romantic time of the year in a way only we know how…with over-familiarity, songs and sweets!
Who was your first crush? Or your first heartbreak? Was it your next door neighbour or a pop star with a dodgy hair do?
We want you to hear your tales of romance gone awry, whether it’s poorly-worded love letters, misjudged advances or simply an unrequited affection. Tell us an anecdote, share a story you’ve written, sing us a song, read us your script or perform a poem – it’s up to you.
You can also just come along to listen – and bring your friends. See you there!
“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.
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.
Expect some Hanson-related stories from Shonette, and some bizarre singalongs from Will.
As ever, it’s free entry, free sweets – and all storytellers get a free drink plus a chance to win a sought-after Let Me Tell You a Story Jack medal!
We’re back on Thursday 4th May, and it’s time to cast your mind back to your school days and tell us about your fondest or cringiest memories.
Who was your favourite teacher? Who stole your lunch money? Who was your biggest crush, and did you ever tell them?
Or what are the biggest lessons you’ve learned since in the University of Life?
Come along and share your tales, or just come to listen and cheer along our storytellers!
***A FREE DRINK FOR STORYTELLERS***
See you there!

We’re back! And this time we want to hear about your dearest memories and the things you’d rather forget.
Share a short story or poem, tell us a tale from your personal life, draw us a comic or sing us a song – we welcome storytelling in all its forms – just make sure you stick to the 5 minute time limit!
Some ideas to get you started:
- What is your first memory?
- What is your most vivid memory?
- Which songs remind you a key moment in your life?
- Is there a person or item you’d forgotten about before rediscovering it?
We’ll also be doing a collection for the charity Mind on the night, so your donations would be much appreciated for this important organisation.
As per usual:

We’re changing location for a special one-off event as part of the Bristol Festival of Literature, and this time our theme is The Great Outdoors!
Are you a fond rambler, explorer or adventurer? Tell us of your frolics, whether it be trekking across mountains, or scaling the heights of the nearest NCP car park – we want to hear it all!
