Bristol's biggest true storytelling event is back this Sunday with a new theme, this month we're going to be hearing stories about hair!

THEME
*********
This month our theme is Hair! This is a theme we've been excited to do for some time because hair is such a important and meaningful part of so many of our lives.

Expect stories about the hair on our heads and the hair on our bodies. Stories about puberty, identity and religion. Getting your hair cut at the barbers, or letting your friend cut your hair during lockdown. Dyeing your hair for a change of style, or dyeing your hair after a breakup. Stories about hijabs, habits and turbans. Maybe you've never cut your hair, or maybe you don't have any at all. Armpit hair, facial hair and pubic hair. Straight hair, queer hair, braided hair. Locs, braids and cornrows. Pigtails, nits and dandruff. Scrunchies, fringes and combs. Hair as a symbol of belonging, or hair as a means of segregation. Society, belief and identity.

It doesn't get much more evocative then hair. Come tell us your stories about your hair this Sunday.

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.
