As Stories at the Storey celebrates another month of awesome stories, we are looking to the future, mainly ours to reflect: how are we making the world a better place? When we’re gone, how will we be remembered?
This month's theme is legacy (loosely interpreted). Join us as 3-5 storytellers share true stories of memories, regrets, bucket lists, choices, and anything (and everything) in between.
What is Stories at the Storey?
Stories at the Storey is a true story open mic night where people share true stories loosely interpreting the month's theme. The environment is warm and welcoming.
Who is it for?
All are welcome. We recommend 18+.
How much does it cost?
Stories at the Storey is free.
What should I wear?
Dress is casual.
Can I share my true story?
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for a 3-5 minute slot. Feel free to bring your story (typed, written, drawn) or have an outline (mental, physical) of what you want to say. The more comfortable you are telling it, the more comfortable the audience will be. We recommend practicing your piece a few times (out loud) before delivering it. Relax, have fun. We want to hear your story even more than you want to tell it.
Any thing else? email us at email@example.com
Free light refreshments will be served.
Sponsored by Grad College, Stories at the Storey is a BBC Get Creative Champion and a BBC Get Creative Event.

No matter how you live, one thing is certain: one day it will come to an end. Hope, money, destruction: What will you leave behind?
As Stories at the Storey celebrates another month of awesome stories, we are looking to the future, mainly ours, to reflect: how are we making the world a better place? When we’re gone, how will we be remembered?
For true stories of memories, regrets, bucket lists, choices and anything (and everything) in between, this month’s theme is legacy.
Do you have a 3-5 minute true story to share on the theme “legacy” (loosely interpreted)? If so, we would love to hear it. Sign up for your 3-5 minute slot for May's Stories at the Storey: May 25, 7-8 PM at The Storey in Lancaster.
