Spark Edinburgh: Stranded 20.4.20

At 8:00pm - 10:30pm, Waverley Bar, Edinburgh

Have you ever felt stranded? That can be literally or metaphorically. Maybe you missed your flight, caught the wrong bus, lost your phone, and ended up stuck in the middle of nowhere, at the mercy of passers-by. But you might also have felt stranded in a more symbolic sense: in a thankless job, or at a party where nobody knows you, but you’re obliged to stay for at least two drinks. (Is there anything worse?)

We want to hear your stories! Join Spark at The Waverley Bar in Edinburgh. Storytellers can sign up on the night.

Doors open at 7.30pm and stories start at 8pm. Pay what you want.
