Night of the Storyteller


07:30 PM

More information

TailSpin presents a pulse-quickening, funny-bone tickling, imagination-prickling evening of shook-up traditional stories and live music.


Have you seen the cloven hoof prints burned on the cellar steps? Have you heard the fiddle player cursing? Can you smell the scent of secrets in the candle smoke? Join TIM RALPHS as he exhumes the bones of traditional devil stories and stitches them a new skin. Darkly humorous with disturbing turns.

Tim Ralphs is one of the most exciting talents on the British storytelling scene. Teller in residence of the Word Smack Cabaret, host of Sheffield’s The Story Forge, winner of a British Award for Storytelling Excellence in 2012 (outstanding collaboration with Simon Heywood) and regular guest of the Crick Crack Club, he comes to TailSpin for the first time in 2013 with his fusion of high energy, high intensity, hilarious and horrific adaptations of ancient tales to familiar urban settings.

Plus music from WORRY DOLLS

Worry Dolls bonded at Paul McCartney’s old school, initially due to having the same fiery red locks. Now in First Aid Kit style harmonies, over Tori Amos melodies and Tom Waits lyrics atop a plethora of varied instruments, they’ve forged something substantially stronger than a hair colour match. A beautiful and captivating result.


Plus short stories from Vanessa Woolf-Hoyle and Laura Burns. Come early to order some of The Miller's delicious food or to sample their excellent selection of beers, wines and cocktails...
