Cracking On Story Sharing.

Online via Zoom

Cracking on sessions present an opportunity for a group of people to explore what a story means to them in discussion with others. The sessions are designed to be informal and relaxed. There are usually between 6 and 16 people at a session, so places are limited so contact us for a place and the zoom code.

Under The Greenwood Tree: Chris Bostock, Malcolm Green and Martin Manasse with music from The Storytellers Street Band.

The Chillingham Arms 89-91 Chillingham Rd, Heaton

Join us as we cross the portal into the earthy world, where the stories are grown from rich, deep, dark humus, nourished by the silence of recent months. We will also be crossing that other portal of meeting each other eye to eye and face to face after a long absence.
We look forward to greeting you all.
