Diary 2020 for StoryNight at Torriano
I hope you are keeping healthy and happy at this strange time in our lives.
We will, of course, be experiencing this crisis in a myriad of ways - some of you may be feeling loneliness and disorientation whilst for others the removal of social pressures may come as a sweet release!
I have not put StoryNight on-line yet. At the moment, I still feel that the connection between you, me, the teller and the story happens in that space, 99 Torriano Ave. Nudge me with an email if you feel it is time to shift my perspective!
Please get in touch with ideas, stories and cocktail recipes!
Or just to say 'Hello' and let me know how you're doing.
Please be my extra eyes and ears too - where and when are you getting your fix of storytelling?
Recommendations and reviews! I can put them up on Facebook and Instagram or that there Twiiter.
I send to all you story-lovers and lappers-up of traditional tales so much love, and heartfelt wishes for us all to come out safely into a new world on the other side of this testing time.

About StoryNight at Torriano
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.
People did not wait for writing before they told stories

What if our education systems were to insist that teachers be poets and storytellers and artists? What transformations would follow?
