Wanstead storytime

The trend for people telling stories, which has been much celebrated by American events like The Moth, reaches Wanstead on Tuesday evening with the Time for Tales event for the Wanstead Fringe. Marian Temple, the national local treasure who regenerates odd parcels of common ground into flowerbeds, is leading the event which is being held at Time For Tea at Snaresbrook. The idea is that people come along and tell their stories to an engaged and friendly group of people. The stories can be fictional, true, rehearsed or free-flow. Details of the event are on this page on the Fringe website and on the Fringe app (iOS and Android.)
