This month our theme will be Watching. More details to come soon...
Quick note: For the time being we will be hosting our shows online whilst COVID-19 makes meeting up in large groups unsafe. For this we will be using the video conferencing software Zoom. See below for detailed instructions on how you can join the show, and you can watch our new announcement video here: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=308450550171881
We will be hosting the show on the video conferencing software Zoom. Once you have purchased a ticket you will be sent a Zoom link and Meeting ID to access the show. (If you would currently struggle to afford a ticket, you can use the discount code FREESLAM to get a free ticket)
Once you've purchased a ticket, simply follow the Zoom link on the day of the event, and follow the on-screen instructions to access the show via your device. We advise doing this 10-15 minutes before the show is scheduled to start so that you can iron out any technical difficulties.
You can join the show via the link on basically any device. However please note that your device will need a microphone and camera if you wish to be seen/heard. You may need the Meeting ID to join the show, but most likely not. You may also wish to create a Zoom account, but that is not required to participate in a Zoom call.
TAKING PART IN THE SHOW
Anyone can come along to a show and listen to stories, but if you would like to share a story, there are 2 ways you can do that. You can either tell a full 5 minute story live on Zoom, or submit an anonymous short story which will be read out by the host during the show.
Or simply text your name or your story to the official Story Slam phone! 07435 094 333
You can also turn up on the day and submit your name/story before and during the show.
Full stories must follow a few simple rules. The rules are not meant to be restrictive, but are there to ensure we get to hear as many awesome stories as possible. If you’re unsure about anything just drop us a message
• They have to be true
• They must be told in 5 minutes.
• They must be *stories*. No rants, stand-up routines or monologues. A story has a beginning, middle and end with some change and/or conflict having occurred.
• They need to be first person. You should be a major character in the story.
• Told without notes or props.
