Open Tellers' Night: Reaping the Harvest

Open Mic, Open tellers' night, call it what you will, but the theme is seasonally suitable, Reaping the Harvest, or if you prefer, Reaping what you Sow, and there is already the core of another great Feast of Fools night to open the Autumn season after our August Break, with people reserving their spots.
At the time of writing there's still space for some more, so please contact us if you'd like a 10 minute performance spot.
We look forward to welcoming performers and listeners alike, and never forget that in live storytelling the listeners are very much a part of the performance, just by listening, and reacting.

October 3rd: Red Phoenix and Chris Secker: The Crown of Feathers and Fins.

Chris, musician, and Terrie, storyteller, combine to bring a story of heroes in a land of jealousy and greed, in a grown-up magical tale bringing music, Phoenix filled skies, mermaids and creatures who talk and dance.
Make a note in your diary now, before you forget!
I've been wanting to see this ever since I heard about it a few years back, and now it's coming here to us!

Where we Meet

Delapre Abbey is the lovely place so many Northamptonians tend to forget about, tucked away off the London Road in Delapre Park.
From February 2018, we've met mainly in the Billiards Room or the Dining Room in the main building. (Follow signs to "Cafe" and you'll get there!) And if you came there in our early days in the Carriage House you'll appreciate the major step up in comfort of this venue!
The whole setting is a gorgeous site, and it belongs to our town, so it's great to be there now, as it's recently had a mighty refurbishment. Details are at and on their Facebook page

Details of how to locate it are on our map page
Once you're at the car park, follow the new path to the right, through the gate, leading across the front of the building, and you should see signs to the Cafe. It does get a bit dark round the corner of the building!
There's also a bus stop at the end of the drive. It's nearly 1/4 mile from the road, if you're walking. ..It's still 1/4 mile if you're not....
