About the Club...

Leeds Story Nights are an opportunity to experience the joys and thrills of live storytelling!

The Story Nights take place at the start of the month, usually on the first Thursday evening. The sessions are open to everyone so bring along that story you have been wanting to tell, or just come along and listen.

Winter Wonder

Stories from the floor.
When the nights are long and dark, the North wind howls and the waves crash against the black rocks, the people of the North gather around the fire and tell a tale........

A Parcel O' Rogues

Andrew Macpherson

It's that scary time of year again - not, not Hallowe'en! We mean the night of the year when the top of Andrew's head hinges opens, and we get to see the strange machinations inside.

Tonight, Andrew will be telling stories all about folk with unusual names and stranger histories. Forgotten stars of the Silver Screen, pointless journeys, and very sore feet. Plus, you'll be amazed to hear what Biddy Mahone's husband got up to beneath the sea in a silly hat...

Plus, there will be an opportunity to hear stories "from the floor". If you have a story to tell please bring it along! As always, we welcome story-tellers new and old who will come to entertain us and keep the traditions alive.

We're moving to the Grove Inn!

Good news - we have found a new venue! The Leeds Story Nights are moving to The Grove Inn on Thursday nights. It's a lovely little pub at the Holbeck end of town, tucked just behind Bridgewater Place (a.k.a. the Dalek).

We're really excited to be moving to the Grove Inn, because it's got a fantastic reputation for supporting live entertainment. There's something going on nearly every day of the week, with the Open Mind Acoustic Night on Wednesday evenings and the famous Folk at the Grove on Fridays, not to mention a whole load of regular gigs and jam sessions.
