The Mee Club: True Tales Told Live

April 28

A Live and Local Event – www.liveandlocal.org.uk

 

We know you have a story in you. Unleash it. Conjure a memory, recent or ancient, good or bad. Tell it to yourself, hone it, cut it, embellish it. Get on stage and tell it.

When ordinary people stand up and tell true tales about their lives, the honesty, humour, warmth, vulnerability and sadness in those stories makes a human connection unlike any other art form. ‘The Mee Club: True Tales Told Live’ champions the craft of this true-life storytelling, drawing people together through the telling of tales.

Cat Weatherill, ‘one of our great storytellers’ (Michael Morpurgo, ‘War Horse’ author), leads a fun and unpretentious personal storytelling workshop for anyone tempted by the idea of telling a true-tale but who does not know where to begin, looking at how to find your story, shape it, and present it. Cat then curates an amazing evening which sees a special guest teller and workshop participants share their brilliant true-tales – weird, wonderful, poignant, inspiring – straight from the heart, live on stage. A truly empowering experience.

‘A magical performer.’ The Times

‘I have seen Cat telling such a variety of tales in such varied venues they have always made me laugh, cry or left me reflective about the world we live in, or indeed the world we would like to live in.’ Public nomination, British Awards for Storytelling Excellence

Cat has performed at some of the most prestigious venues in the land, including the South Bank Centre and the Barbican Pit in London, and St David’s Hall in Cardiff, and collaborated with the mighty folkband Bellowhead. _________________________________________________________________________
