Beeston Tales

Hi there! This is a little post about Beeston Tales, a monthly storytelling night that is currently roaming around in search of a new home. For the next two events, we’re in the back half of the garden at The Victoria. It is a club dedicated to the vibrant and ancient art of storytelling. Hosted by Tim Ralphs and Mike Payton the club features themed nights, showcases up and coming local tellers, invites renowned guests from around the world, includes musical spots and much more.

There is a hypnotic feel to the tales: you’re back round that prehistoric campfire again, rapt.

Let yourself be transported to worlds that are otherwise unreachable. – Bryony Ashmore, Nottingham City of Literature. (Read full review.)

Your hosts Tim and Mike

Our storytelling events start at 7.30pm. You can buy tickets on the door for £7, or get them here now for only £6. Here’s what’s coming up soon:

14th August ~ Maria Whatton ~ City of Dogs

Through a kingdom where the air is a symphony of barks and howls, a pack of dogs race towards a court of justice. Welcome to the City of Dogs where a trail of stories unfolds as a trial is held!

In this warm and witty storytelling by Maria Whatton, the relationship between humans and their four-legged friends is told through myth, legend and folk tale. A superlative shaggy dog story for dog owners, dog lovers and even those who prefer cats, this terrific tale will get tongues, and tails wagging.

11th September ~ Michael Harvey ~ Uncaged

a story from the Wild Side…

A twisted tale of cross-dressing, attempted seduction and a huge hairy man in a story that defies categories and leaps, hairy and smelly, out of the collective imagination, demanding to be heard.
