Anne Lister Looking for storytelling opportunities (10) Looking for storytelling opportunities 12 Oct 16

Some of you may have thought I've been rather quiet about gigs of recent times, and you're right - I'm busy working on a PhD at Cardiff University and it's taken up much of my time. However, it's a PhD about an Arthurian romance, and part of it is practical. I need to find a range of audiences who will listen to me telling episodes from this romance and who will be prepared to give a degree of evaluation about what they've just heard. So I'm looking for storytelling clubs and less formal gatherings as well as festivals, bookshops and wherever storytelling can happen - primarily in the UK and Europe, because as this is a work in progress I'm happy to do this initially for whatever monies will cover my expenses.
Any thoughts? I've got bookings in the diary already for storytelling clubs in Cardiff and a few house concerts, and I'll be doing something at the Leeds Medieval Congress, and the Chateau de Comper in France. Have contacted a few more places but could do with more. In case you were wondering, the romance was written for adults but there's no reason why children shouldn't be part of the audience (there's some cartoon violence but no sex!), and I'm looking for a range of people including some experts in Arthurian literature and some people who have no clue about anything of the sort.
One idea from a house concert recently was for me to do a set of my own songs as a first half of the evening and then the story for the second half ...there is a lot of flexibility involved.

Please feel free to pm me or email me
