Call Out for Storytellers!

Storytellers, day-dreamers, yarn-spinners, big thinkers, mind-wanderers and wishful believers…we want you.

True Tales ‘Cafe Culture’ Special at Hebden Bridge Town Hall: Thursday 4 February 2016, 2.30pm 

True Tales is, in essence, a collection of true stories, told by the people who’ve lived them. Placed in a theatrical setting and punctuated with live music, we believe that the power of a story lies in the simplicity of its telling.

A collaboration between Collision Theory Theatre and inner-i music, True Tales presents a new collection of storytellers with each event to create this charming blend of storytelling and live music in communities across West Yorkshire and beyond.

We are currently looking for storytellers in or with links to Hebden Bridge, to join us in the True Tales ‘Cafe Culture’ Special at the Hebden Bridge Town Hall in February. Remember, this is all about true stories from real people, so no previous experience necessary – if you’ve got a story, we want to hear it, whether you’re an established performer or a stranger to the stage. 

Got a story you want to tell? To submit an idea, email your name, contact details, location and (up to) 250 word summary of your story to

See our full guidelines for storytellers here.

Performance date: Thursday 4 February, 2.30pm at Hebden Bridge Town Hall
