Hi there! This is a little post about Beeston Tales, a monthly storytelling night that meets in the upstairs room of The White Lion. 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.

You can get cheap advance tickets here or from The White itself. You can also contact The White Lion about a special “tapas and tales” ticket which gets you a meal with your evening of storytelling. The “Tales and Tapas” ticket is only available directly from The White Lion. Note that there’s free parking at The White Lion as long as you’re a customer, but it can be in short supply!
Our storytelling events start at 7.30pm. You can buy tickets on the door for £6, or get them here now for only £5. Here’s what’s coming up soon:
12th April 2017 ~ 3Troubadours “Mobile Dreams”
Markus Luukkonen (Finland), Tom Van Outryve (Belgium), Torgrim Mellum Stene (Norway). Mobile Dreams is a poetic, funny and warm storytelling performance about the everlasting human search for truth and connection, freedom and beauty. In a playful stream of English spiced with their native tongues the three performers behind “Mobile Dreams” tell a string of tales both mythical and personal all connected by the language of dreams.
