Stories from the Floor

The White Lion pub in Hebden Bridge is your chance to tell a tale at Shaggy Dog's club night. The whole evening is given over to storytelling by audience members. Our floor nights are a renowned feature of the storytelling year.

Come and tell a folk tale, personal tale, story in a song, monologue, narrative ballad, true or false anecdote, scary story, ghost story, bawdy tale, fable, local legend, myth or fantasy. The choice is yours for up to 8 minutes.

Tales should usually be told rather than read. Practise your tale first and remember that the audience will support you - especially if you keep it short! Or...

Just come along and be entertained by tellers from near and far. Please be seated before 8pm.

£7 on the door.
