About Guid Crack Storytelling Session

22nd October - 8pm

You Won’t Believe What Happened Next!
With guest storyteller Michael Williams

Life is full of surprises – twists and turns, ups and downs, ins and outs. Our stories attempt to describe these unexpected events and express the confusion, astonishment, and wonder that so often accompanies them. Come and tell a story – a life experience, a folktale, myth, or legend – that takes your audience on a journey into the realm of the unanticipated.

29th October - 8pm

Lanarkshire Folk Tales - Our Ancestors’ Journeys

31st October - 8pm
