Public Humiliation 16.12.19

At 8:00pm - 10:30pm, Brixton Ritzy, London

We’ve all done something so embarrassing that the mere memory causes us to wince. Perhaps it was a misjudged Facebook post that you deleted just a little too late. Or a terrible performance in your school talent show which still plays on your mind decades later. Ever introduced your partner using your ex’s name? Or had an awkward slip-of-the-tongue during a company-wide presentation? Whatever it is that keeps you awake at night, we want to hear your stories!

Join Spark Upstairs at The Ritzy in Brixton. Storytellers can sign up on the night.

Doors open at 7.30pm and stories start at 8pm.
Entry is £5 on the door or in advance through the venue’s website.

Faking It 20.1.20

At 8:00pm - 10:30pm, Brixton Ritzy, London

Fake it till you make it: a well intentioned piece of advice that can have disastrous consequences. Ever bluffed your way through a job interview, embellished the truth to impress a date, or faked facts to win an argument? And did anyone catch you out? Perhaps you’ve worked for someone who turned out to have zero clue what they were doing, or discovered that a person close to you wasn’t who they claimed to be. We want to hear your stories on the theme of Faking It.
