About the Event
Hosted by Gav Cross: Storyteller, do join us for the most ancient of pastimes, the sharing of stories. Mix in our unique interpretation of storytelling; traditional tales, myths, legends, local lore, laughter, song, poetry & even good old conversation; and we promise you a good night out.
Knowsley is the Liverpool City Region Borough of Culture and with the theme of storytelling being at its heart, we want to give you a good night out.
This months special guest is Sian Davies:
"Sian Davies is a comedian, MC, presenter and writer from the North West of England. Her droll, widely relatable, observational material puts an insightful spin on the everyday.
She regularly performs at theatres, festivals and comedy clubs across the UK and is the driving force behind sell out fringe phenomenon’s Best in Class and Comedy Queers.
A real crowd pleaser; just as relaxed in an intimate comedy club, festival stage or huge theatre. She effortlessly combines razor sharp wit with true life stories to enthral audiences.
Sian won the award for Best Debut Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival in 2020, was runner up in the Funny Women Stage Award in 2019 and winner of Hilarity Bites Best New Act in 2018.
As a recipient of The Hive mentorship award from Greater Manchester Fringe, Sian was able to develop her first solo stand-up show. In 2021 Sian was selected through the Open Call scheme to be part of the re-opening program at Unity Theatre, Liverpool.
She is working class and queer, and fiercely proud of belonging to both communities."
Plus we will be mixing in local bards from our ‘Telling Tales’ storytelling workshop.
