Let Me Tell You A Story, Jack at The Crofters Rights on Thursday 31st August 2017Posted on: 31 Aug 2017
English entertainer Max Bygraves may well have immortalised the phrase "I wanna tell you a story" into the pop culture lexicon, but The Crofter Rights in Bristol is giving the city's budding storytellers the chance to recite their tales at Let Me Tell You A Story, Jack on Thursday 31st August 2017.
The storytelling criteria is as broad as it is wide, as eclectic as it is diverse, as mysterious as it is entertaining. In other words, if you're something of a wordsmith and have a chapter or two to impart or a short story to regale, then now's your chance to unleash your creative writing kudos to the masses.
Teenage nemesis? Childhood best pal? An imaginary friend you used to converse with? Envision yourself as a mythical figure protecting a dark, dystopian world? The most altruistic thing you've done for a friend or total stranger? The choice is yours, dear writer, and here's the perfect platform from which to take advantage.
Entry is free, a selection of sweets are free and, hell, there's even a free drink for every storyteller. Don't worry though; intoning your mini-masterworks to the enthusiastic multitudes isn't a pre-requisite for entry - you can just pop along to listen if you prefer.
Jamie is a writer, blogger, journalist, critic, film fan, soundtrack nerd and all-round Bristolian good egg. He loves the music of Philip Glass, the art of Salvador Dali, the writings of Charles Bukowksi and Hunter S Thompson, the irreverence of Harry Hill, and the timeless, straw-chomping exuberance of The Wurzels. You can sometimes find him railing against a surging tide of passing cyclists, or gorging himself senseless on the Oriental delights of a Cosmos all-you-can-eat buffet.
