I am getting a bit over-excited about Her Story – a women-only true storytelling event on Hampstead Heath next week.
We’ve been planning for about 30 people, but as you can see the Facebook page shows around 140 attendees! Okay, I know it’s unrealistic, but I’m sort of secretly hoping absolutely everyone will be there on the night as it would be totally chaotic and lots of fun to talk about afterwards. However, we won’t all be able to tell a story, that’s for sure!
As a storyteller, I really enjoy telling some of the stranger anecdotes from my own life as well as relating other people’s true stories. True stories often have a gripping immediacy quite different from the primal soul-power of folk tales.
You may feel that you also have a story to tell. If you are London-based and would like an opportunity to tell people about something that happened in your own life, feel free to contact me as I will be holding another true-story event this autumn!
