BUDDHA BABIES told by Xanthe Gresham

BuddhaChildonElephantStatue

We are luring the inimitable Xanthe Gresham back to London...

From Greece to India, India to China, there are folktales and myths of unconventional births.  China to Tibet, Buddah Babies  is a baby-shower of stories, riveting for those blessed with children and a metaphorical took-kit for the one in five women (+ all sexes not exclusively female) who may never conceive in the conventional way.

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.

Fairy tales are more than true, not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

G.K. Chesterton

People who don't have stories in their culture go nuts.
