Innocent un-plugged Festival • 28.5.16 - 30.5.16

At 9:30pm - 10:30pm

Be it young love, the first time you moved away from home, or when you still believed in Father Christmas, we have all seen the world clouded by naivety. And so, in a culture dominated by scepticism, world-weariness and keeping up appearances it’s refreshing to look back at a time when believing was that bit easier. It’s time to unplug, reminisce and return to being those impressionable people we once were. Spark has been invited to a secret Kent location for the Innocent un-plugged festival to hear your stories about wide-eyed innocence.

Spark Open Mic - 'Did that really happen?' • 13.6.16

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

You know the feeling: that feeling of thinking O – M – G! Unbelievable things happen all the time. They can be extraordinary – as in ‘I just saw an Alien’, or it can be a bit more down to earth as in, ‘I can’t believe my wedding dress ripped as I walked down the aisle’. Whatever it is, we want to hear your story. So swing on by Hackney to listen to stories, or tell your own and make the audience go “OMG, did that really happen?”.

Doors open 7.30pm/ £4

(Ticket link soon to come.)

Spark Open Mic - 'I really shouldn't have done that...' • 20.6.16

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

Have you ever thought ‘I really shouldn’t have done that…’ immediately after having done something? Or perhaps you told your best friend to never speak to you again, or maybe you just ate 5 chocolate cakes in a row, and thought that you could have made a better decision. The question is – what happened after you regretted having done a certain thing, and how did you deal with it?
The stories this night in Brixton will be stories of regret, and the consequences or surprises that follow after having said to yourself ‘I really shouldn’t have done that.

Doors open 7.30pm/ £4
