Story Saturday – March

Story Saturday is a new evening of story telling from A Word In Your Ear. Writer-performer Clare Reddaway teams up with fellow authors to bring you a medley of stories full of vim, vigour and wit.

For the next Story Saturday on March 23rd Clare welcomes Bath favourites Doc Watson and Natalie Watson to Clifton Library, Bristol.  Doc and Natalie have been writing and reading their stories across the south-west for many years. Story Saturday promises to be  an engrossing evening of warmth, drama and laughter.

Story Saturday: March 23rd.  Doors open at 7.00pm, stories start at 7.30pm. Tickets are £5 on the door or in advance from Clifton Library, Princess Victoria Street, Bristol BS8 4BX.  There will be a licensed bar.  For more information do visit the website of our lovely hosts Foccal – Friends of Clifton Library.

“Really great, well worth suffering the freezing weather to attend!” (audience member).

CLARE REDDAWAY: Clare’s short stories have been published in anthologies, on the web and in magazines, and they have won or been shortlisted for a number of prizes.  ‘Clare’s writing has a wonderful lyrical quality’ [NYC Midnight judge]. ‘There is a universal quality which makes reading this fiction such a pleasure and a delight’ [NYC Midnight judge].  ‘A beautiful piece of writing,’ [Stella Feehily, playwright].

Doc and Natalie Watson have performed many of their stories at Story Fridays.  If you would like a taster, you could listen to their stories in the Story Friday archive.  Try Doc’s story performed at Story Friday Stolen and Natalie’s story performed at Story Friday Home.


Previous Story Saturday writer-performers:

PHILIP DOUCH:  Philip is a writer and performer from Stroud who has appeared frequently at Story Fridays in Bath and twice at the Cheltenham Literature Festival. Written so that he himself can read them out loud, his stories exist not on the page but between him and his audience. With a bit of luck you’ll have as much fun listening to them as Philip does performing them.
