We Love New Music!


The Story Sessions

The Story Sessions

It’s like a folk club, but with spoken word. Headlining authors and poets read to you, and you join in with ‘Flash from the floor’:
100 words of fiction or poetry, written specially, happening to fit the theme, or scribbled in the interval.

Testbed session: just before the interval an opportunity for a writer to try out a brand new piece on an audience and maybe get some feedback.

Actor/Musician in residence, Annalie Wilson, will read for the shy or geographically distant.

Music, book sales, some silliness, lots of words.
Upcoming dates and themes
Wednesday 16/11/2016 tales of FREEDOM
Wednesday 18/01/2017 WINTER tales
Wednesday 15/03/2017 RETELLING Tales (esp Myths/legends)
Wednesday 17/05/2017 Fantastic tales

If you want to get involved as a headliner or with a testbed reading get in touch with a proposal and either the piece you want to read or sample if you’ve not written it yet. If you have a book you want to promote that is on theme you are welcome – your work doesn’t have to be unpublished, but you have to be ok with us putting up a video extract on the website.
If you want to join in with Flash from the Floor, just turn up and make yourself known during the interval.
