Beermat Sized Workshop open for bookings

By March 17, 2021 Events

Thursday 8th April 2021 7pm – 9pm (online)

Some of the best stories are told at the bar or by the fireside of a good pub.

The mix of good ale and good cheer illuminates the memories, as the histories and mysteries of past, present and future are shared. As many people are currently missing the opportunity to hear or tell such tales in a pub, we invite you to join us for a Back of a Beermat story writing session by the flickering light of your computer screen.

Hosts Katie Etheridge & Simon Persighetti will guide you through some fun and creative exercises towards the telling and writing of Beermat size stories.
