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.

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!
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!

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!
