Storytelling to get you thinking. Keeping the oral tradition alive.

Word of Mouth is a monthly gathering all about storytelling and the oral tradition.  The club meets on the first Friday of the month and welcomes visitors from across the North West to share tales and be entertained.

We have a mix of guest storyteller nights and stories from the floor, bringing some of the finest storytellers from across the land to Manchester to entertain, thrill and inspire.

"Like many storytellers, I have some superb memories of the club over the years, most recently with Dark Tales from India, where it was one of my most enjoyable sharings of these dark, sensual and twisted stories.  And that's what makes Word of Mouth so special, your audiences ROCK!!" - Peter Chand.

Everyone is welcome, whether you come with a tale to tell, or simply to listen and be entertained.

What's on next...

Friday 3rd March 8pm

The Haunted Inn and other tales from the Saragossa Manuscript 

We welcome storyteller Michael Dacre and musician Steve Yates who will conjure an evening in 18th century Spain in an Arabian Nights style entertainment of tales within tales, and interwoven by the magical strings of the guitar.  

We're promised (very) Moorish princesses, hanged men and a host of ghouls, vampires and gypsies in these stories to send a shiver up your spine.  Mix in bewitching serenades and foot-tapping Spanish dances and we're in for a real treat.

What audiences have been saying about this show... "risky, weird and wonderful, hard-core storytelling", "it was the best thing I've ever seen", "Brilliant storytelling - mad and engrossing".


Tickets can be bought on the door, £7 waged, £5 unwaged.  We are in the upstairs room of The Britons Protection, 50 Great Bridgewater Street, Manchester, just opposite the Bridgewater Hall.
