Lass Fest -  Theme of the month 'Women'
An Open Mic Storytelling Event hosted by Simone the Resident Natterbox.
About this Event

Expect an honest, unpretentious evening of exchange. Driven by a theme of the month inspired by true stories unfolding in the world however big or small. You will leave with a dollop of wholesome heart-warming connection with a bunch of strangers with a side-order of amusement at the stories shared and a recognition of how connected we all really are.

A one off special for LASS FEST.

Theme of the Month: WOMEN. It's International Women's Day and it's only fitting we celebrate the females in our lives.

Story Line Prompters: Tell us tales on the lasses that shaped you, made you, even broke you. Let's celebrate all those women in your life that you have formed a relationship with whether that be your Grandmothers, Mothers, Sisters, Daughters, Wives, Aunties, Best Female Friends, Female Bosses. Tell us the funny snippets of their wisdom, their individual quirks, their inspiring talks. Their fierce actions and how that influenced you.

How it works.

One set theme and an acknowledgement that there is two types of people in the world.

The Storytellers: You have five minutes of fame. Five minutes to tell the long story of the short tale. Let it be powerful. Let it be punchy. Let it be your authentically yours to tell. The interpretation of the theme is yours to own and can be delivered in any communication form you feel comfortable with (Storytelling/Spoken Word/Poetry/Singing/comedy/drag queens).

The Listeners: Our crowd. If you’re only here for the entertainment then your in the right place! Expect this to be part confessional, part comedic, part therapeutic. This evening is not staged, these are just everyday folk like you and I that have the confidence to share their experience with you. Our only rule is be present, be respectful of others and give them a hearty applause upon sharing! The beauty of this evening, is you really don’t know how the evening will evolve and that’s what makes it so exciting.

There are to strangers here, only friends you haven't met yet. Long Story Short wants to create a environment which is open to all. Each of us, unique yet relatable. Weird yet wonderful. The fish to the chips of life. Gobble up that feeling and let's form a community.

****Walk ins are welcome subject to space capacity and safe social distances guidelines met. ****
