Stories we have never dared to tell before. A story about a secret that should never have been revealed. Maybe you confided in someone? A heartwarming tale of being kept safe and secure, or perhaps your trust was broken? There are stories that we tell over and over again, our go-to tales for any occasion and then there are stories that are harder, lurking at the back of your mind that you've only told once or twice and are not very well known. Maybe they're deeply personal tales, something you did that you could have gotten arrested for or maybe it's something you're telling for the first time tonight or maybe someone in your story utter the words 'I've never told anyone this before'.... Tonight we're sharing secrets, getting things off our chest and releasing past burdens or glories in a room full of the friendliest strangers you will ever find.
Our true storytelling shows are friendly, open, intimate and honest and the stories moving, life-affirming, shocking, captivating or just plain hilarious. It's different to a comedy show where the expectation is laughter... here laughter comes, but it's a part of a whole breadth of other emotions and reactions to the stories and it makes for a rich, fulfilling evening's entertainment.
Anyone from the audience is encouraged to share true stories alongside pre-booked and professional storytellers. There is a great mix of stage experience on offer and it really adds to the spontaneity of the evening.
If you have a story you'd like to tell tonight or on any of our upcoming themes, please visit our website and fill in a form with an outline of your story and the theme you think it fits best.
