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 Hero Light - Dominic Kelly

The Hero Light retells the extraordinary stories of the Ulster Cycle  - the 'Irish Iliad' - an epic of interweaving stories centered on legendary hero, Cu Chulainn, The Hound.  Dominic brings them to fizzing contemporary life, balancing irreverent humour ad beautiful imagery with a powerful rendition of a deeply affecting tale.

"It was a fantastic night.  The storytelling was remarkable.  It shouldn't be possible to conjure up such a rich, colourful and vibrant world in a plain, darkened room, but he succeeded spectacularly." - Audience member, The Storey, Lancaster.

Dominic's precise and powerful storytelling style, his dry wit and complex composition, have captivated audiences around the world.  In the UK he has performed at venues including the Barbican, National Theatre, British Museum and The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival and in theatres, festivals and schools in 15 countries on 3 continents.


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.
