On Thursday 13 February, true storysmiths Tales of Whatever will be joining us for a delectable night of food and love themed true tales, told firsthand by the people that experienced them. Find out more about the event here.
To get you in the mood, here’s a bonafide yarn from Nija Dalal about an unusual encounter in a Taco Bell.
Founded and presented by writer-performer Mark Powell and now in its third year, Manchester-based monthly storytelling event Tales of Whatever places first-timers alongside more seasoned performers to share a 10-minute, experience-based true story, told live without notes in front of a public audience.
Speakers to date have come from as far afield as Buenos Aires, Gauteng, Salford and New York City, and ToW has been approached to host special sessions and workshops for a wide range of organisations including Festival No.6, Cornerhouse, The Albany, BBC Radio 3 and Manchester Science Festival.
