Herd: Queer Stories
5 June 2019 Donation
7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
LGBTQ+ storytellers, roll up…
Brighton’s unusual underground storytelling club is back, hosted by Herd’s very own queer storyteller Leah.
Herd provides a unique opportunity to connect with others through the power of open-mic storytelling. Join us for a night dedicated to first loves and frissons from Brighton’s LGBTQ+ community and allies.
There will be booze, non-alcoholic options and a lovely audience.
This month’s theme is CRUSHES.
Expect to hear and share stories about falling head over heels, arse over elbow and that first kiss.
If you want to tell a story on the night, you can add your own name into the hat and you’ll then be allocated a slot at random.
Here are the basic rules;
1. Stories have to be true
2. Stories have to be 5 minutes (ish)
3. Stories have to be yours to tell
4. They aren’t harmful or hurtful to a section of society
Be brave. It feels great to share.
But don’t worry, you don’t have to tell a story if you don’t want to, being a receptive and welcoming audience is just as important!
Spaces are limited, so make sure you register for your ticket online to guarantee entry.
We’re using a sliding scale of payment, with suggested ticket price at £5 and concessions at £3.50 – but feel free to pay what you can afford.
