Where stories go for a good night out
It’s the night when story-tellers, story-readers and keen audiences join in the enjoyment of story. We also welcome songs which tell a story.
The first half of the evening will be for all-comers, - announce yourself on the night and, if there’s a story-space, we’ll fit you in. First come first served. The second half will be by invitation of the curator of that particular night.
We ask contributors to stick to some simple rules:-
- all written stories to be original creations
- first half stories to be no longer than 7 minutes (for readers that means about 1000 words of text) – and we will be strict about this. Watch out for the gong…..!
- if you have a longer telling or reading to offer please submit your request by Monday of the week of the Story-Night to email@example.com and we’ll let you know soonest if we can fit you in to the second half of the night.
- please try to match your story-content to the interests of a wider audience
If you are unsure about reading a written story yourself we may be able to find an experienced reader to do it for you. If you would be interested in this please give us some notice.
So do join us every month and if you’re just keen to sit back and listen we can guarantee a rich and satisfying audience experience – a good time will be had by all.
Saturdays Oct - Jan: 31st Oc t 2-4.30pm,14th Nov 2-4.30pm, 12th Dec; 2-4.30pm, 1:1 session tba with tutor, final date tbc with group £60/£40
