It’s like an open mic night but less focus on music on more on people. ?

Dublin Story Time is a storytelling night at the bottom of the Ha’penny Bridge. Share anything to a room full of strangers and meet new people. The idea of the event is to push people out of their comfort zone and share tales and memories.

Relax and unwind and hear some tales from our audience and if you want to share, stand up and tell us something!

We encourage audience members to take part in this event but there is absolutely no pressure.
Top 3 storytellers chosen by our judges receive a Story Time certificate.
We also have a very friendly crowd who love first time speakers.

It’s €7/€8 into the event and that covers you for the whole event and unlimited goodies. There is unlimited free water,tea,coffee,biscuits,noodles and popcorn with your ticket. On the night you can submit your interest to tell a story by putting your name in the hat

Doors open at 6.45 and event will start a bit later.

THE RULES.
*Audience members can put their names in the hat to tell a story
*We will randomly select names from the hat to speak
*Each speaker has up to 8 minutes to tell a story.
*The audience judges will secretly mark storytellers.
*The top three stories will be announced at the end and get a certificate.

Each month we get a huge mixture of stories, poetry and performances from fixing toilets to sneaking into music festivals to taking pictures of mugs, it really varies.
