Welcome to A Word In Your Ear. A Word In Your Ear is all about stories. We don’t think that people spend enough time telling stories these days. We plan to remedy that!
If you’d like to listen to live stories, freshly written, wonderfully performed – we run Story Fridays in our local town, Bath, here in Somerset. Every couple of months we gather a group of writers and invite people to listen to what inspires them about a theme. The next Story Friday is on November 11th 2016 at Burdall’s Yard. As it is Armistice Day, we have the theme WAR. Doors open from 7.15, stories start at 8.00, tickets £5.00 on the door. Instead of having live music for this Story Friday, we have decided to make a donation to Bath Welcomes Refugees. We will have some great tracks playing behind the bar though. Come along to Burdall’s Yard, 7A Anglo Terrace, Bath BA1 5NH. We’d love to see you there!
“I’d never been to one of these story readings before and it was…. great!” Sid, audience member, Story Friday Gold.
In other news: A Word In Your Ear is thrilled to have teamed up with Bath Hospital Radio to provide a series of stories ‘From Flanders Field to Bath: Tales from the War Hospital’ to commemorate the founding of the War Hospital at Combe Park in 1916. Stories are being transmitted every morning at 11.00 o’clock between June and October. You can listen to them online every day, and soon they will be available on the Bath Hospital Radio ‘listen again’ feature.
We’ve started a new venture – Earshot. We are building up a story bank of wonderful stories by our favourite writers, read by professional actors or the writers themselves, which you can listen to at your leisure. Click here to find out more and have a listen.
Get in touch if you’d like to be involved.
Thank you for visiting, come again soon.

We’d like to thank Bath and North-East Somerset Libraries service for their continuing support of Story Fridays, and in particular reader-development officer June Wentland.

We were thrilled that the stories and photographs from Story Fridays Goes Swimming became part of Fringe Arts Bath’s ‘To Bathe’ exhibition, curated by Chloe Scholefield. The stories perambulated around Bath in Chloe’s bathing hut – and will be seen and heard throughout the summer in Bath. Catch ’em if you can.
