Story Fridays are story events held on – wait for it – Fridays every other month. Come and listen to six or seven writer-performers reading freshly-minted stories inspired by a theme. There will be warmth and laughter, wine will flow and you might see an occasional themed crisp (don’t know what a themed crisp is? Come along and find out!).
2018 has been quite a year. We’d like to celebrate it at Story Friday with stories that are inspired by events that happened in 2018. These events can be personal, local, national, international; they can be political, environmental, romantic, comic, tragic. We’d like a whole range of responses to what we’ve just experienced, as we usher in the new dawn of 2019. Story Friday 2018 will be on 25th January 2019, deadline for submissions Monday 14th January.
Come along to Burdall’s Yard, 7A Anglo Terrace Bath BA1 5NH on Friday 25th January 2019.
Stories start at 8.00pm, doors open 7.15. Tickets are £5 on the door.
Venue: Burdall’s Yard, 7A Anglo Terrace, Bath BA1 5NH
Clare Reddaway of A Word In Your Ear runs Story Fridays with Olly Langdon and Caroline Garland of Kilter Theatre.

Story Friday Invitation: 22nd March 2019
An invitation – to the ball, to the party, to the pub, to the moon, to the wedding, to heaven, to hell. What is more intriguing than the perfect – or imperfect – invitation? We will be inviting writers to write their favourite invitation story for a glorious story-party in March. Story Friday Invitation will be on 22nd March, deadline for submissions 11th March.
Story Friday The Garden: 3rd May
It’s the beginning of summer and we’re going to celebrate that most summery of locations – the garden! Stories set in gardens, stories inspired by gardens, stories scented with lavender, with roses, with manure; stories pressed with flowers, flavoured with herbs, entwined with leaves – dig us a story, pluck us a tale. Story Friday – The Garden is on 3rd May, deadline for submissions is 29th April.
Please read all submission details here before you submit.
