Leeds Lit Fest presents
Following a successful run at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe, especially for the Leeds Lit Fest, Tales of Whatever is proud to present a literature themed night with writers, storytellers and comedians sharing 10 minute true stories in the historic surroundings of the Leeds Library.
Up to five acts join hosts Mark Powell and Lee Moore to share tales of funny, weird, glorious or memorable incidents and encounters.
Previous speakers from as far afield as Buenos Aires, Gauteng, Melbourne, Salford and NYC have discussed being shipwrecked, marrying pantomime horses, collecting in-laws from prison, and solving domestic hauntings with GCSE chemistry.
Tickets are £8, or £6 if you are a Leeds Library Member. Please show your card on the day.
