Our third and second to last Tell Me On A Sunday is about to start, and the Ikon cafe is filling up quickly. This event is proving so popular that we’re turning people away. If you’re planning on coming to the last one on May 27th, make sure you book to get a table, even if you’re not planning to order food from the lovely Ikon Cafe.
Tonight’s storytellers are: Gauri Raje, Ryan Jones, Polly Tisdall, David Howat, Cath Edwards and Helen Watson. The evening is curated by the national storytelling laureate, Katrice Horsley, who is also telling her own story. Tonight’s theme is Feathers and Bones and we can’t wait to hear what comes out.
