SPARK LONDON: Story-telling


Theme: Back to School

Spark London run true story telling events all across London... and now they’re coming to Hackney! The new Open Mic will showcase the stories of East Londoners and will take place on the 2nd Monday of each month at the Hackney Attic.

The nights will be hosted by the Sony and Radio Production Award nominated podcaster, performer, writer and musician, Dave Pickering, who is a seasoned true storyteller and compère.

Come along and watch people tell their true stories based around that month’s theme. Expect the unexpected as people sign up to tell their stories. It's an exciting and engaging atmosphere.

Perhaps you'll even be tempted to tell your story!

‘Britain’s first true-storytelling club night’ (Guardian).

‘Spark is at the avant-garde of a new post-celebrity culture’ (Evening Standard).

'You will not stop laughing' (Independent).

The holidays are over and how better to face the jolt back into the "real world" than to come and share stories about it? Going back to school, going back to work, or even revisiting your past, we want stories about returning, about ending and about "the best years of our lives".
