Storytelling Circle

Hosted by James Baillie
When: Wednesday 03 July, 21.00-22.30
Where: Leeds University Union: Common Ground

This event is free of charge (first come, first served).

Come and join other IMC attendees for a late night storytelling circle! This is our fifth storytelling circle at the IMC, offering relaxed entertainment and exploration of the world of spoken stories for tellers and listeners alike.

The art of oral storytelling in various forms was integral to the background of many works we now think of primarily as literary texts, and this is an opportunity to experience something of that as well as an alternative to the IMC’s dancefloor for those who want some quieter entertainment. Come to listen to and share riddles, poems, songs, and spoken stories, be they medieval, folkloric, or otherwise.

All are welcome to come and participate - no experience expected or needed - or just come and go as you please and relax and listen as the night draws in around us.

This event is sponsored by LUU Medieval Society. The LUU Medieval Society was formed in 2013 in order to promote a thriving community of medievalists both at the University and in city of Leeds.
