At Spark events you will hear personal stories not by professional storytellers but by anyone with a great story to share. Expect to be surprised and moved.
As heard on the podcast
What does it mean to have the right balance? Trying to maintain a career, a social life, our hobbies, our families and our personal lives is one tricky business in the 21st century. Balance can be a physiological thing that medicine helps us with, it can be a meditative state done in an ashram in India, or something done by a circus princess on a tight rope.
Come on down to Hackney to listen to stories on the theme of balance, or imbalance, or tell your own if you find you have got a story to tell.

Spark London and Mind in Haringey come together for the third year in a row to bring you remarkable true stories about creativity and mental health.
Elves, reindeers, miracles and so on. Christmas is the time of cosy mulled wine, sparkly lights and secret kisses under the mistletoes. But Christmas is also full of expectations, distant family visits, awkward conversations with long lost siblings and a feast of meat for the vegetarians. The expectations can go very wrong, and can be very uncomfortable.
Spark is inviting you for one of the final open mic events of the year, however, there are NO EXPECTATIONS. Come along and share your story, or listen to other people’s.
Doors 19.30/£4 Ticket link to come.
