More details:

The dreariest months of winter are upon us. January and February are casting their dark shadows. All gatherings are banned, and we are huddled inside our dens waiting for the storm to pass. What better way to spend these gloomy nights? So, dim the lights, pour yourself your favourite winter warmer, make yourself cosy and let the internationally renowned storyteller Clare Murphy take you away into mysterious lands. Clare will be joined by surprise guests for a trip around the world.

All donations to this event will go to support Bristol Refugee Rights, who have been supporting thousands of people seeking asylum and refugees in the Bristol are since 2006. To learn more about Bristol Refugee Rights please visit their website.

Some quotes from the previous event:

“Its been a beautiful experience – I’ve been totally transfixed. We need more of this.”

“Oh, how you’ve made me laugh!!!” “Can we do this every week :)”

“Masterly storytelling – all delivered at a pace which meant there was never a dull moment”. Culture Whisper

“Clare Muireann Murphy’s beautiful lilting Irish voice was in stark contrast to the darkly humorous stories she told us, and she her first-rate comic physicality only served to enhance her storytelling.” Everything Theatre

“Leading us through stories within stories within stories, Murphy’s comfortable charm and wit sparkled around the room, illuminating the darkest corners of her tales.” Oxford Literary Review
