Spark London Events

Spark Open Mic - Reunion 4.2.19

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

Reunions can be sweet, they can be bitter sweet, or they can be… well, downright bitter. A gathering of family, friends, colleagues or school mates can feel cosy and familiar. Or it can bring up long-forgotten rivalries and childish grudges. A meeting with the ex you promised you’d never speak to again (but secretly hoped to see) can be cathartic or irritating. Or perhaps your own memorable reunion hasn’t been with a person at all, but with a place, an old hobby or even an emotion.

We want to hear your stories. Join Spark at The Bill Murray pub in Angel for a (brand new!) night of true storytelling. Storytellers can sign up on the night. Nervous first-timers are very welcome, but getting up on stage is not compulsory.

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

Spark Open Mic - Unlikely Friendships 4.3.19

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

It’s tempting to think there are rules about friendships. That our best friends should be our age, share our politics, binge-watch the same shows, be on good terms with our partners…

But what of those friends who don’t fit the mould? Those from unfamiliar backgrounds, those 30 years older than we are, or those on the other side of the world. What about the friends we seemingly have nothing in common with, yet would trust with our deepest secrets? Dwindling romances can turn into lasting friendships. Our parents can become our best mates.

We want to hear your stories. Join Spark at The Bill Murray pub in Angel for a night of true storytelling. 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.

Spark Open Mic - Courage 1.4.19

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

An act of courage isn’t always something big and bold and audacious. It isn’t always something that earns us the respect of our friends or even any praise. Sometimes the bravest acts can be quiet and subtle. Standing up to a bullying boss. Being honest with your family. Breaking up with the person you were meant to spend your life with. Changing careers. Making it the whole way through the film Hereditary (*shivers*).

We want to hear your stories on the theme of Courage. Join Spark at The Bill Murray pub in Angel for a night of true storytelling. 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.
