Upcoming show - March 12, Gullivers Ballroom, Manchester
We’re gearing up for our next live event in a couple of weeks, and it’s looking like we’ve got a lovely mix of stuff lined up (one slot still open, so yell up sharpish if you want it!).
Amongst others, we’re excited to be bringing you anecdotes and adventures from Warrington poet Joy France; comic and Tales semi-regular Lee Moore; the dashingly vertiginous Karl Owen (who previously told us a barnstorming story about
stealing borrowing an entire apartment); and - in a rare break from our usual ‘no reading’ rule - a first-person nonfiction essay by ace blogger, writer and adopted American-Mancunian Kate Feld.
As ever, we’ll also have games and sharing opportunities built in for the audience to trade shorter snippets of experience with the rest of the crowd, and we’ll be doing all this from the lofty environs of the newly refurbed upstairs ballroom space in Gullivers on Oldham Street, starting at 7.45pm.
If you’re interested in sharing a true life story as part of this or a future Tales event (the show after next is on April 9, and we’re already taking bookings for that), drop us a line to the usual email address, or grab us on Facebook or Twitter - links to all three are in the sidebar on the left.
In the meantime, see below for a couple of shots from last month’s session at the Albany theatre in Deptford, London. We had a brilliant night, the tech and FOH teams worked like superstars to help make it all run smoothly, and of course the fantastic storytellers - including Thom Tuck, Chris Thorpe, Louise Mothersole and Rebecca Biscuit (Sh!t Theatre), Greg McLaren, Neil Bennun, Rachel Grahame, Andy Field and James Avery - were a dream come true.
Thank you very much to all of them for stepping up (especially to Andy for the organisational help), and to the Albany for asking us down to London to deliver the event.
Cheers, and see you all back in Manchester on the 12th.
