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...

The Emerald Sea - Shonaleigh

Shonaleigh returns for another epic tale from the drutsyla crystal cycle of stories.  Her visit last year was a highlight of our 21st century celebrations and we can't wait to hear more.

Prince Rahab's kingdom is threatened.  The power which, from the beginning of time, has held destructive powers in check depends on the inscription of an unutterable name, and the name is being erased.  

Rahab and his queen must make a sacrifice to save the kingdom, but the prince has been imprisoned by a woman who has done a terrible wrong, and the queen is on a quest to find him.  

Shonaleigh is one of the shining lights of the storytelling world.  Brought up in the Drutsyla tradition by her Bubbe (Grandmother), she carries a repertoire of over 3000 stories, sharing them with great passion and leaving listeners with a truly moving experience to remember.


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.

Drop us an email if you have any questions.
