True Stories Live is a lively, moving and unpredictable event where people tell true stories about their lives in front of a warm, supportive audience.

There is no audition process and just a simple set of guidelines to bear in mind. All you need is your own experience and a story to tell, inspired by the theme of Lost and Found. Speakers can come from a wide range of different backgrounds. If you perform regularly in another context, you’re welcome. If you haven’t been on a stage since that incident in primary school, you are also very welcome. And if sharing your story isn’t for you, come along and just listen as a member of our lovely audience.

If you are interested in speaking at the True Stories Live event, please send a short synopsis of your story to

Molly Naylor is leading a fun and FREE workshop on Tuesday 14th November at Storyhouse from 6-9pm for those who would like to tell a story and who need support in finding and shaping it. Click here for more info and to book a place.
