Upcoming Glasgow events

Periods 21.8.17

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

Have you had phases of depression, or elation when everything was going well, periods of stagnation when you waited for things to improve or times of your life when everything was turbulent?

Or maybe you have been affected by the female hormonal cycle in one way or another.

We welcome any stories on the theme of “Periods” to share with our audience.

Tickets £5. Pay on the door or in advance from here

Sharing 11.9.17

At 7:30pm - 10:00pm, Hackney Picture House, Mare Street

As a child most of us have been sat in the playground, screaming our lungs out from having to share our favourite toy with the other children. Maybe you were a blissfull only-child until your sibling came along and everything changed because all of a sudden you had to share everything with this new stranger in your house. Whether it is facebook sharing, house sharing or car pooling we know for sure that there’s a story to tell.

Come along on this September evening and listen to the stories of others, or share your own on the stage.



Miscommunication 18.9.17

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

Have you run off and done the wrong thing because you did not listen carefully enough? Or given instructions out only to find that nobody understood what you were on about? Were you too nervous to ask the right questions and then realised you had no idea what to do? Or maybe a meaning was lost in translation. Perhaps you are still working out how there was a whole set of pieces left over after assembling that wonky cupboard from Ikea.

Whether with family, partners, work colleagues or friends we have all had moments when the message is lost and confusion ensues. Come to share a story or listen to others tell theirs. All stories must be true, involve the storyteller and be about 5 minutes long.

Spark creates a friendly warm environment that makes it easy for anyone to get up on stage and share something from their lives.

Entrance £5
