— The Wardrobe Theatre
Story Slam is where you can hear people's true stories told live on stage
price: See event details


Story Slam is where you can hear people's amazing true stories, told live on stage. Come and share your own story, or simply come along and enjoy everyone else's. ❤ Wanna tell a story at one of our events? No need to get in touch, simply arrive on the day and follow instructions to submit your name.
We are back in real space at the Wardrobe Theatre and we're so excited to see you all again.
• There will be a limited audience
• The wearing of masks is encouraged throughout the show
• Everyone will enter and exit via the fire exit car park (directions here: https://thewardrobetheatre.com/temporary-theatre-entrance/)
• Hand sanitiser will be provided, as well as increased ventilation in the theatre
• There will be enhanced cleaning in the theatre before and after the show.
• Full refunds will be offered if performances are cancelled for any reason.
This month our theme is Watching. Stories about seeing, observing and looking. Memories, movies and shows. Watching a concert or watching someone dance. Stories of bird watching, cloud watching and watching the clock. Stories of court cases, eye witness testimony and watching in horror. Watch out! Watch your step. Watch what you say. Stories of ever watchful Gods, angels and parents. Police, watchdogs and watching the news. Stalkers, voyeurs and astronomers. Stories about the neighbourhood watch, or perhaps the feeling of being watched. Is seeing believing? Can you bear witness? Have you got a true story about watching? Then come join us on September 19th at Story Slam

Live stories must follow a few simple rules. The rules are not meant to be restrictive, but are to ensure consistency and give as many people as possible the chance to share stories.
• 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.
In the interest of making the story slam a safer and more comfortable place, storytellers are able to submit content warnings for 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.
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/
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, let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
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.
