SILENCE (3) told by Rachel Rose Reid

In the whole World, only one manuscript unfolds the Roman de Silence. Written around 1250 by Heldris of Cornwall, it was discovered in 1911 in an old English Manor House, in a box marked 'Old Papers, No Value' (under a few letters from King Henry VIII).

The story follows a gender fluid (really) descendent of King Arthur thrown into a quest for empowerment and equality.

It is packed with adventure, humour and conflicts that feel familiar to our modern ears.
In 1911 suffrage protests were at their explosive height, so the controversial manuscript was kept silent.

But the story was made to be told.

Now is the time to tell it.

London’s liveliest storytelling club-night for adults, run by Nell Phoenix.

Professional storytellers headline the evenings at our intimate, candle-lit space. They spellbind us with stories that have been told and re-told for ever - epics, myths, legends, folk and fairytales.

These tellers transport with their tales, they connect in the moment with the space, the story and the audience, creating an intimate and unique experience. At StoryNight, storytelling is a traditional yet wholly contemporary performance art.

StoryNight is at the grassroots of the London storytelling scene. We have a fun and friendly crowd and the best listening ears in the capital!
At StoryNight we encourage well-honed 10-minute tales from the floor. Speak to Nell on arrival.

And it’s only £7 on the door including wine and nibbles. For details about the next StoryNight, see our Diary page.

Take a punt on any of the (other) storytellers Phoenix finds for her Story Night. This really is storytelling for grown-ups at its absolute best - one of London's best-kept secrets.

We want a story that starts with earthquakes and works its way up to a climax.
