Unfortunately the dates fo the next storytelling evening turned out to be rather ambitious. What with family, work, and trying to get my application on to a college course approved, I haven’t managed to get enough material together and rehearsed to get a complete evening together to a level I’m happy with.
I love storytelling, but I can’t do it half prepared: I’d mess things up and waste your time.
So, I need to push the date for the evening onwards. As I’m theoretically starting a full-time course in April I’m not going to say when until I have a better idea how much time and energy I’ll have to spare.
I’ll be back, et,c…
A bit of negotiating and I’ve now got the dates and the venue for the next storytelling evening, on Saturday the 9th, then Friday the 15th, and Saturday the 16th of April. The reason I’ve pushed it so far way beyond is that I’ll have finished my contract by then so I’ll have some buffer time for preparing if I find myself dealing with something unexpected and time consuming.
Based on no scientific evidence whatsoever, I’ve decided that the ‘Great British Evening’ went better than ‘The Complete History of the Industrial Revolution” so the current plan iss for more stories from or about the UK, some of which may actually have happened, but probably not exactly in the way I’ll be telling them.
With brilliant originality I’m calling this “Another Great British evening”, but tha may change if I get some fantastic idea for an alternaive.
As before the evening will be at Pfarrstrasse 2, 73760 Ostfildern. The evening usually takes about an hour and a half with a fifteen minute break in the middle.
There will probably be cake.
So, the last few months have been very busy, what with starting a new, enjoyable, but challenging job working with children and young people, and applying for training so I can keep doing for the long term. If all goes to plan I should start a course from April.
This explains why I’ve been a bit quiet since the last storytelling evening.
All of the above is of course, good news, but it is also frustrating not being able to tell stories, so I’m organising another evening in a couple of months. I’ll put up a more exact time later in the week.
I’m thinking of “Another Great British Evening”, with a new set of stories from different parts of the UK. Any other ideas?
