price: see event details

Information:

WINTER IS HERE! ❄️⛄ The weather is getting colder, the trees have lost all their leaves, and snow is starting to fall. Inside home, the heating is going on, trees are being decorated, and presents are getting wrapped. Everyone is cracking out their beautiful winter clothes, some are travelling to see family, whilst others are settling in for a cosy solo winter, or nestling in with friends and loved ones. But there is one more thing to do before we say farewell to 2021...
Have a big celebration at the Story Slam END OF YEAR SPECIAL! Woo! ✨
If you've not been to one of our end of year shows before, basically imagine a normal Story Slam, but with tons of decorations, food, drinks, gifts and winter cheer.
We are really excited to celebrate the end of the year with you all, especially as we didn't get a chance to in 2020. We're going to share stories, reflect on the past year, eat food, have a drink and put our feet up.
Make sure to bring friends, family, food, gifts, and winter warmth and cheer, and help us celebrate the changing of the year and the turning of the planet. ⭐

Story Slam is where you can hear people's amazing true stories, told live on stage.

THEME
*********
At our end of years events, the theme is not very carefully defined. You are welcome to get up on stage and tell a story on whatever you would like. Everyone is encouraged to share a story from the previous year. However if you would like a more concrete theme, then we would like to suggest Cycles! Stories centred around the changing of things, renewal, regrowth, seasons, patterns and rhythms.

STORY RULES
*********
Live stories must follow a few simple rules, they must be:
• True
• Told in 5 minutes or less
• Stories. No rants, stand-up routines or monologues. (A story has a beginning, middle and end with some change and/or conflict having occurred)
• Told in first person. You should be a major character in the story.
• Told without notes or props.
*********
CONTENT WARNINGS
*********
In the interest of making the Story Slam a safe and comfortable place to be, storytellers are able to attach content warnings to their stories, to warn of any sensitive topics. Details of how to do this will be explained on the day. Content warnings are read out before each story to give people a chance to leave the room if they so wish.

SAFER SPACES
*********
We work hard at Story Slam to try and create a place where people feel safe and comfortable to share stories. We're continually trying to make our events better places to be, and our aim is to hear stories that we don’t get to hear anywhere else. We want to make Story Slam better than the world around it. So to help us achieve this, we have our own safer spaces policy. http://www.storyslam.co.uk/safer-spaces/
*********
ACCESSIBILITY
*********
The venue has full step free access to the theatre and the stage. If you have any specialised requirements to attend that we can help with, please get in touch! And if there’s anything else we can do to help make the event more accessible to you, just let us know. ❤
*********
AGE LIMIT
*********
Story Slam has no age limit, however the live and spontaneous nature of the show means that profanity and adult themes are to be expected. Children are welcome if accompanied by an adult, but parental discretion is advised.
