Ikon’s storytelling evenings Tell Me On A Sunday return

Tell Me On A Sunday, Ikon’s popular storytelling events organised in collaboration with Writing West Midlands, return for a new season on 27 January to coincide with National Storytelling Week 2013 (26 January-2 February).


Hosted monthly in Café Ikon, Tell Me On A Sunday sees five storytellers perform a seven minute story live and based on a given theme. The evenings are curated by Cat Weatherill, one of Europe’s leading performance storytellers, who also tells her own story.


These events begin at 5pm with Story Supper, a chance to meet fellow audience members and story tellers over a special Café Ikon menu.

A special workshop event on 13 January, Tell Me…Where to Begin, will provide a practical introduction to anyone who would like to take to the stage but is new to storytelling. Cat Weatherill will demonstrate how to bring your story to life and present with confidence. Tickets for the workshop are £4 and should be reserved in advance by calling Ikon on 0121 248 0708.
