At Spark events you will hear personal stories not by professional storytellers but by anyone with a great story to share. Expect to be surprised and moved.
When did you last seize a big opportunity? Whether it was a chance to escape your hometown, chase your dream career, meet your idol, reinvent yourself, speak your truth… or simply prove yourself in front of a new group of friends, we want to hear stories about the times you took the leap – or missed your chance to do so.
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 through the venue’s website.
