Love and Loss Tour…

Friday night was the last night of the current Love and Loss Tour.It was a real pleasure to be at one of the UK’s longest established storytelling clubs – the fabulous Word of Mouth in Manchester. Organisers Honor Giles and Helen Stewart where very accommodating, changing their usual format to allow for a show without an interval, and the audience were beautiful listeners.

I learnt a fascinating lesson about my performances too – when the audience connection is strongest, I tell the stories more slowly – the whole set lasted about 15 minutes longer than usual! Thank goodness it was the kind of venue where that didn’t matter.
