We Need to Have Some Words with HIM!

What Stories Will You Share?

A picture tells a 1’000 stories?

Building on from the success of his poem writing, my 15 year old son, Tadhg, is planning his next project –  a story telling evening. He hopes you will come along, share stories, poems or maybe tell a joke. It should be an enjoyable evening where we’ll share, learn, laugh and perhaps be moved.  He’s been a member of Ilkley Young Writers Group for a number of years and therefore seen and heard some wonderful, engaging and powerful performances. We hope a number of them will be joining us on Friday 11 March 2016 – hopefully a treat for all ages. A community event – where everyone is very welcome!

Coopers in Guiseley have very kindly let us have their function room, so it looks set to be a great evening. Coopers is just over a 5 minute walk from Guiseley train station.Guess there are some wonderful stories to be told about Coopers and its function room dating back over half a century?

It is all part of Tadhg’s fundraising activities for his Scout Expedition to Morocco this summer.  There are several ways you can support this:

1. Buy a ticket, come along and listen;

2 .Even better – buy a ticket and tell a story or share a word or two;

3. If you can’t make the evening, why not record a story and send it to us to play to the gathering!

Tickets are £5, Concessions £3, Families £12 and available from Coopers or please simply:

I promise not to mention the story of Tadhg singing twice on stage with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band – unless someone buys me a pint or just whispers please!!

Doors Open at 7.30pm, and the food is very good at Coopers if you want to arrive earlier – Words from 8pm.
