Questions 9.4.18

At 7:30pm - 10:00pm, Hackney picturehouse, London

Most of us have a burning question we wish we could answer. But knowing how and when to ask isn’t always straightforward. Have you ever demanded the truth and been surprised by the outcome? Challenged a system that you didn’t agree with? Or simply been caught out by your own curiosity? Sometimes it’s the questions we ask ourselves that have the biggest impact.

Whatever your story, we want to hear it. Join us to share your experiences in a friendly, encouraging environment.

Entrance £5, doors open 7.30pm, stories from 8pm

The Boss 16.4.18

At 7:30pm - 10:00pm, Brixton Ritzy, London

When did you take charge? Maybe your life needed changing and you stepped up to make things happen. We all need to do that from time to time.

And then there are those times when you are put in charge of others or given new resposibilites. Were you out of your depth or did you totally boss the situation?

We have all had “interesting” bosses at work or college. What happened to you when bosses created difficult working conditions or required you to perform strange tasks. Some bosses are amazing and might have inspired you to new levels.

Come along and tell us about a time when you were the boss or had been bossed around. Or listen to others tell their stories.

Spark open-mic evenings involve inviting members of the audience to tell a true personal story from their life of about 5 minutes in length. We create a warm friendly environment that makes it easy for anyone to get up on stage and share something from their lives.

Doors open 7:30pm. Entrance £5

Housemates 14.5.18

At 7:30pm - 10:00pm, Hackney picturehouse, London

Housemates come in all forms – friends, partners, parents, pets. Sometimes we’re lucky enough to choose the people we live with; often we are not. Do you have a story to tell about the people you’ve shared space with? How they’ve irritated, delighted, frustrated or supported you? Would you be a different person without them?

Join us to tell your story in a friendly environment, or listen to others share their experiences. Stories just have to be true, up to five minutes in length, and they must be about the storyteller.

Entrance £5, doors open 7.30pm, stories from 8pm
