Story Slam is BACK

— The Wardrobe Theatre
Come hear people's amazing true stories told live on stage! Now back in-person!
price: See event details


Story Slam is back! How long has it been?! Too long! After a period of hibernation at Story Slam HQ, we are slowly waking up and crawling out of our burrows! And we are back to being able to host actual in-person shows! We are SO excited to see your lovely (masked) faces again soon in a socially-distanced Wardrobe Theatre! Details of theme etc. to come soon. Ticket links going live very soon! Make sure to keep an eye out for it because we have a reduced audience size as a safety measure. More details of how we're being safe below.
• There will be a socially-distanced limited audience
• There will be allocated seating on the day to ensure safe travel around the theatre
• Seats are allocated in pairs, and tickets are only available in multiples of 2
• Masks must be worn by all audience members
• Everyone will enter and exit via the fire exit car park (directions here: https://thewardrobetheatre.com/temporary-theatre-entrance/)
• Hand sanitiser will be provided and 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.
Ticket link: TBC
On stage 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 then 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/
We want our events to be as accessible as possible. 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.
