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 Wednesday 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.

We've just moved from a Friday night to the first Wednesday in the month, allowing us to always have the larger room, less time queuing to get a drink, and an easier journey in and out of the city.  But it's still the same fantastic Word of Mouth storytelling club.

The Howken Field - by Nick Hennessey

'The Howken Field: a Reiver's Tale'  - Beneath the low sky there is a field.  At its edge two ravens speak of those that have fallen and of those yet to be born into the world of the hollow wind.

Existing between worlds, between laws, the Scottish Borders are mysterious, a place of secrets.  Unearthing a hidden hoard, Nick Hennessey tips out the glittery 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.


Tickets can be bought on the door, £8 waged, £5 unwaged.  We are in the upstairs room of The Britons Protection, 50 Great Bridgewater Street, Manchester, just opposite the Bridgewater Hall.
