Here at The Amazing Blog we love to get out of the office and embark on new adventures. When the ‘Bedtime Stories’ press release hit our desks, we were so intrigued that we were ready to pack our PJ’s and explore.
Now, don’t be fooled, ‘Bedtime Stories’ consists of far from your average list of slumber party fairytales. Hosted in interior designer David Carter’s house, 40 Winks in Stepney Green, the stories are mainly ghost based and are told by storytellers and actors in a specific, fantastic manner, acompanied by a a number of spectacular live musicans. If you are looking to take a break from the real world and truly escape from reality, this event is for you.
On October 15th is The Natural History of Ghosts, told from the best selling book by the author Roger Clarke. What makes this show so unique is that Clarke grew up in a haunted house, and became a ghost fan from the age of 14. On October 16th , Tales of Terror follows with a comprise of two stories from MR James, the first acknowledged English master of the ghost story. November 19th sees the performance of Tales from the Chrysanthemum Kingdom, featuring an evening that will blend tales of old Japan, music and dance and offering a rare glimpse into a world that was closed to the West for almost 400 years. Finally, to bring a close to the seasons performances on December 10th the final performance of ‘Stories to Make you Weep’ will (as the name suggests), move you to tears as it brings to you Christmas stories from Scandinavia.
So, if you’re feeling adventures and eagar to put on your pyjamas, prepare yourself for a true treat! This event was voted the ’60 Best Things to Do in London. Tickets are £30, and include cocktails and nibbles. If you wish to book a performance, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org.
