Event Details

Story Cafe presents Winter Fest

Sunday 08 December 7:30pm

The Lyric Theatre, 9 Barrack Street, Bridport DT6 3LX

Tickets £10.00 available on the door only (advance online ticket no longer available)

Three storytellers and two musicians come together again at the beginning of winter for a festive celebration of story, music and song. Over the eight years since the start of the Bridport Story Café, they have all become warmly welcomed performers and some years ago were part of a joyful summer outdoor storytelling event that went on into the night around the fire.

Jane Flood, Martin Maudsley and Rebecca Smart bring their mythical skills and infectious delight in the emotional power and the playfulness of words and story. Fiona Barrow and Martin Solomon demonstrate their remarkable musical talents and dexterity in echoing and enhancing the storytelling.

The evening will be a way of acknowledging the ending – after eight years – of Christine Bell’s hard work curating the Story Café, including its move from Bridport Arts Centre to The Lyric at the start of 2019. Martin Maudsley will be taking on the organising of future Story Café events from the start of next year.

This evening is likely to go on rather longer than the usual two hours and there will be snack food available in addition to the paying bar. There will be an opportunity to donate anything extra for the five performers should you wish.

Doors & bar open at 7pm for a prompt 7:30pm start. Please bring cash!
