Spark LondonÂ wasÂ Britain’s first true storytelling club – and we now have nights across the UK. Everyone is welcome to sit back and listen, or you can get stuck into the action and tell your own story.
With a different theme each time, youâ€™ll soon find yourself talking to friends and strangers about moments from each otherâ€™s lives. Our aim is always to connect people through true stories.
There are regular storytelling nights at the Hackney Attic and Upstairs at the Ritzy, and we put on a monthly show in Exmouth MarketÂ featuring all the best stories plus special guest storytellers.
You can also subscribe to our award-winning podcast.
Spark London has produced shows at the Edinburgh Festival, Foyles, the Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown, Manchester Town Hall, Soho Square, and the Blue Elephant Theatre.
We are a small team who believe in the power of true stories. Everyone who comes to Spark, whether to listen or to tell their story, plays a big part in what we do. If you are looking to volunteer we’d love to hear from you, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spark London was foundedÂ in 2007 by Joanna Yates, a business psychologist who overcame dyslexia to become an expert on the art of storytelling. Since then, thousands of true stories have been told live from Spark stages.
