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!

Join the Facebook event for more info, or find out more about the Bristol Festival of Literature on their website.

Join us for our first event of 2016 and tell us about your ambitions, poorly thought out resolutions and general ill-advised attempts at self help or reinvention.

What did you want to be when you grew up? Are you too shallow for a meditation retreat? Too drunk to do Dryanuary? Or maybe you actually realised your dreams and achieved something amazing – we want to hear it all!

As per usual, bring any stories, songs, poems or crude sketches you want to share with us (5min time limit) – the theme is only a suggestion, and if you like you can just come to listen.

Entry is FREE, all storytellers get a FREE DRINK and you all get FREE SWEETIES for being bloody lovely.

Oooh ooh, and if you’re needing a double fix of us in March, come see us for the Bristol Seed Swap at Feed Bristol on Sat 5th March – we’ll be doing our usual mix of storytelling, music & games alongisde some green-fingered folks who will be giving talks, sharing cake and of course swapping seeds.

Hurrah!

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

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.
