Bambisanani Story Telling Evening

Building on from the success our earlier events, and his subsequent visit to the project, my 17 year old son, Tadhg, is planning another story telling evening. During the visit he learned just how much of a difference anyone can make, so he hopes you will come along, share stories, poems or maybe tell a joke. We expect it be an enjoyable evening again where we’ll share, learn, laugh and perhaps be moved.

The Bambisanani Partnership is a charity that has been making a difference for over a decade, having a positive impact on both communities. All proceeds from our evening will go directly to the charity.Tadhg’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 17 November  – hopefully a treat for all ages. A community event – where everyone is very welcome!

Coopers in Guiseley have, once again, very generously let us use their wonderful function room. So it looks set to be another 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?

Ubuntu is a simple South African concept about community, sharing, and our common humanity. It underpins the Bamisanani Partnership’s work.

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!

For tickets:  £5, Concessions £3, Families £12 please simply:

I promise not to mention the story of Tadhg singing twice on stage with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band again – 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.
