Live performance of sparkling new stories in ravishing countryside just outside Bath.

Pack a picnic, put those beers in a cooler, sling a camping chair over your shoulder and join us for an evening of sparkling wit and joyous storytelling. And you can bring your friends along too!

On Saturday 24th July we are putting on our first live event since February 2020. Bath-based A Word In Your Ear has been producing innovative story events, such as the ever-popular Story Fridays, for nearly a decade. We’d like to welcome you all to a brand new evening of stories from some of Bath’s favourite writer-performers in a beautiful secret setting a few miles north of Bath.

We are very lucky to have been invited to a local farm in one of the Cotswolds’ most glorious valleys. This farm is not open to the public, so it is a wonderful opportunity to experience the peace and tranquillity of this gorgeous rural setting. If the British weather is unkind, we will take cover and tell stories sitting on haybales in one of the farm’s gorgeous barns.

“We are so delighted to be able to read our stories to audiences again,” says writer- producer Clare Reddaway. “We’ve got some cracking yarns to share with everyone up at the farm.”

We are welcoming seasoned writer-performers: Mark Rutterford, Philip Douch, Stephanie Weston, Clare Reddaway, Dawn Lippiatt and Elaine Miles. Many of these writers have been performing their work for Bath audiences for years. Elaine Miles and Clare Reddaway are story regulars on BBC Radio Bristol, Stephanie Weston is artistic director of popular Bristol based improv company Instant Wit, Dawn Lippiatt is a talented and award-winning artist with a children’s book publication in the pipeline, Mark Rutterford and Philip Douch have read their work at events and festivals across the south-west for many years.

PLUS for all of you writers out there! We’re offering two writers a fantastic opportunity to have your work read by wonderful ex-RSC actor, Catherine Mallorie! Bring along a story that you have written and you could be chosen to hear your words on stage!

Stories start at 7.00pm. The site will be open for picnics and general chatter from 6.00pm. Tickets are £8.00 a head, and are available from Eventbrite here:
