Mr Rook’s Presents… The Storyteller’s Bardic Chair of Somerset

Thursday 19th October

Doors 19.00 // Starts 19.30



Once a year Mr Rook’s steps away from its usual format and collaborates with Openstorytellers to bring you the Bardic Chair – an open competition where anyone can tell any traditional or original story and the winner is chosen by the Fates. This leads to a fantastic mix of tales and tellers, with highly-experienced professionals telling alongside beginners giving their first public performance to a supportive audience. MC for the evening will once again be Taffy Thomas.
Come to listen: Come to tell
All are welcome


Age 12+

£9 // £7 concessions
Tellers get in free but must book in advance via Mr Rook’s facebook page
