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!).
We’re thrilled to have a lovely review of Story Friday in the Bath Echo in January:
“The joy of it is in the breadth of imagination of the writers, the huge variety in tone and style, and the sheer quality of the material.”
“Unique, entertaining, and often uplifting. If you haven’t been yet, I recommend you do.” [Bath Echo]

Story Friday Sunrise: 19th June 2020
At 04:52 on Friday 19th June the sun will rise. It will a new day, the dawn of a new era. Anything could happen.

Deadline for submissions is 8th June.
