Story Jam: Sex, Drugs and Rock’n’roll – The Paraphernalia of a Bacchanalia

Story Jam July

Join Story Jam at their new monthly residency for nights of wild and wonderful stand-up storytelling. Expect tales as old as the hills and bang up-to-date, told every-which-way. From the Arctic to the Antipodes, epic to everyday and profound, pin back your ears, raise your glass and get stuck in to Story Jam

Story Jam summer festival of fables. Stand-up stories to make you feel hot, shiver with enjoyable fear, whoop with delight at revenge. A great big night of release. Roll up, roll up!

All the paraphernalia for a bacchanalia. Tales as old as the Stones and still banging, in a great big night of devilment, booze, riot and sex gods. Four hundred rodents will be released. Hell will receive its own. Artistes will throw tantrums. Women will reveal themselves.


SEX! Passion, desire, danger, obsession

DRUGS! The mighty grape, poisoned shirts, altered states, enchantment, possession.

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL! Music, dance, genuine gods of rock, fast cars and naughty nymphs.

Also, the inaugural pre-emptive Monsieur Homme memorial contest. A human clap-o-meter will be enrolled from the ranks of the audience. Be among the first 21st century ears to hear this unmissable long-lost archive.
