"I hadn't been to an event like this before so wasn't sure what to expect.
I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and I will be back for more!"

Word Spun

Our regular storytelling and spoken word nights began back in 2017 and since then we have changed names and moved locations several times. Our nights have evolved as well and now we welcome a regular set of local storytellers, musicians and poets, alongside special guests from across the UK. We want to create the best experience possible and always seek the best performers to deliver it.

2020 saw a new chapter being written for Word Spun as we moved our nights onto a virtual platform and since then have been welcoming new storytellers and audience from both the UK and internationally through zoom. We are going to continue with 'Word Spun Zoomed' to allow us to continue to connect with audiences who otherwise would not be able to join us in person.

What Audiences Say...

"The stories transported me to new places and lifted my mood."

"Attended my first Spinning Yarns event last night and it won't be my last. I just loved it! The storytellers were amazing, so expressive, their spoken word draws pictures in your mind and transports you into the story itself."

"A thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining evening, that provoked lots to think about"
