The Howken Field: a Reiver’s Tale told by Nick Hennessy
 

"Beneath a low sky an old man, bent with purpose, makes his way through a field. Above him, in the swirling dark, two ravens speak of those that have fallen and of those yet to be born into this world of the hollow wind." 

Existing between worlds, between laws, the Scottish Borders are mysterious, a place of secrets.  Unearthing a hidden hoard, storyteller and musician Nick Hennessey tips out the glittering treasures of story and song that press up through field, fell, burn and beck of the Borders shedding light on dark memories of the place.”

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.
