Spark Preston VIII • Spark

We’re delighted with the success of our revived Spark event in Preston in our new venue, Ham and Jam. We had ten stories told on the theme of ‘Trouble’, and all learned much from each other’s from personal incidents around the world and in differing circumstances. Here is a rapid fire round up of the stories.

  • The dangers of catching a thrown hamster.
  • The consequences of a stolen box of Quality Street.
  • Incidents with ice ponds and chickens near Riga.
  • The difference in treatment by the INS if you’re British or Palestinian.
  • Interrupting the President of Uganda’s motorcade.
  • How to convince your colleagues you’re not the bad guy.
  • Preparing fruit salad for an audience (by twin A).
  • Stepping in for your twin at a vital moment; (by twin B).
  • Being the lookout who gets caught.
  • Juvenile culinary experiments in Mum’s kitchen.

A varied interpretation of ‘Trouble’!


So get your stories in mind for next month’s theme – PRIDE – and come and join us on 24 September at Ham & Jam.
