Spark London Events

Birthdays 1.7.19

At 8:00pm - 10:30pm, The Bill Murray, London

Which was your most memorable birthday? Perhaps it was one of the big ones (three-oh, six-oh, two-one!) Or perhaps it came and went with very little fanfare. Maybe you look forward to your birthday all year, or maybe you hope to let it pass unnoticed. Whether it’s your awkward thirteenth birthday, your mum’s now-infamous fortieth, or the year someone else stole your thunder, we want to hear your stories!

Join Spark at The Bill Murray pub in Angel for a night of open-mic true storytelling, and share your experience in front of an inclusive, welcoming audience. Storytellers can sign up on the night.

Stories start at 8pm, though the bar is open all evening.
Entry is £5 on the door or in advance.

Quitting 15.7.19

At 8:00pm - 10:30pm, Brixton Ritzy, London

Don’t be a quitter!! From an early age, we’re taught the value of perseverance. But it isn’t always easy to know when a project, a job or a relationship has reached its natural finishing point. Have you ever given up on something – or someone – only to regret it? Or have you continued to pursue something long after it was worth your time and energies?

We want to hear your stories about “Quitting”! Join Spark Upstairs at The Ritzy in Brixton for a night of true storytelling. Storytellers can sign up on the night.

Doors open at 7.30pm and stories start at 8pm.
Entry is £5 on the door or in advance.

First Love 5.8.19

At 8:00pm - 10:00pm, The Bill Murray, London

When was the first time you remember getting butterflies in your stomach? That light-headed, giddy, often slightly scary feeling that we get when we care about something more than we feel we should. It might have been a person who you made you feel that way – you first school crush. It might be a famous figure or fictitious character that you fell head-over-heels for. Or it might not have been a person at all. Perhaps it was the thrill of winning your first 100m race or the joy of solving your first maths problem or the first time you saw someone who looked like *you* on a TV show.

We want to hear stories about your First Loves. Join Spark at The Bill Murray pub in Angel for a night of open-mic true storytelling, and share your experience in front of an inclusive, welcoming audience. Storytellers can sign up on the night.

Stories start at 8pm, though the bar is open all evening.
Entry is £5 on the door or in advance.

Journeys 19.8.19

At 8:00pm - 10:30pm, Brixton Ritzy, London

“Life is a journey, not a destination” is the sort of cliche we’re used to seeing posted all over social media (beach sunset optional). In truth, life is often made up of lots of journeys. Some are of the more literal kind – leaving home, moving country, going travelling – but there are other kinds of transitions, too. Changing careers can feel like a journey, as can any major change. It’s about realising that you no longer want your life to stay the way it is now – at “point A” – and finding a way to move on, to find your new life at “point B”.

We want to hear about the journeys you’ve taken! Join Spark Upstairs at The Ritzy in Brixton for a night of true storytelling. Storytellers can sign up on the night.

Doors open at 7.30pm and stories start at 8pm.
Entry is £5 on the door or in advance.
