Story Fridays are story events held on – wait for it – Fridays every other month. Come and listen to six writer-performers reading freshly-minted stories inspired by a theme. There will be live music, wine will flow and you might see an occasional crisp.
Story Friday June – South
All points south! Blow The Wind Southerly, the Deep South, the South Pole – we felt this could be a fitting theme for us here in the south-west. We’re delighted to announce writers Mark Rutterford, Mark Hynes, Adrian Paul, Clare Reddaway, Julie Hayman, Sally Gander, Elaine Miles and Steve Tuffin, who will be reading a veritable smorgasbord of delights to our audience! Story Friday South is on June 30th at Burdall’s Yard.
Stories start at 8.00pm, doors open at 7.15.
Admission £5.00. Tickets 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 and Caroline of Kilter Theatre.

We’re very excited because FoCCal, friends of Clifton library, have asked us to talk a Story Friday to Bristol! So we’ve picked up Story Friday Gold, and we’re taking it on the road! Stories by Mark Rutterford, Philip Douch, Clare Reddaway, June Wentland, John Barter and Tricia Wastvedt will be read as part of the Clifton Village mini festival on Saturday July 8th. Doors open at 7.00, stories start at 7.30. See you there!
Fast, fast, faster, fastest! Those stars we see which died millions of years ago, the shutter speed on a camera that captures a car’s headlights as it travels through the darkness, the blink of an eye, the flash of a thought. Perhaps we will have a glimpse of infinity in this Story Friday! Story Friday The Speed of Light will be on 22nd September. Deadline for submissions is 4th September.
We’ve never done ghosts before – so this is your chance to write a really scary haunting and haunted story of ghosts and phantoms, ghoulies and poltergeists and things that go bang in the night – we want to be shaking in our boots! Story Friday Haunting is on 24th November, deadline 13th November.
