Story Fridays: Quilt of StoriesEvent Website
Stories to surprise and delight, entertain and enthrall, read by writer-performers in a warm, friendly, cabaret atmosphere. Story Fridays is a popular and regular Bath event featuring six freshly-written stories by local writers, with live music to set the scene.
This month the stories are inspired by an heirloom patchwork quilt, stiched over decades out of party dresses and children’s favourite skirts, out of school uniforms and kitchen curtains – a quilt full of stories and memories. It was the springboard for our writers to create stories inspired by materials – the slide of silk, the rasp of denim – to remember quilts made by their mothers, their grandmothers, their grandfathers, or ones that they bought in Ikea. The pieces they read will stitch together to form an evening patchwork of stories.
