One Night, Ten Stories: Loose Lips returns to the Roisin Dubh

Wednesday, March 31st, sees the return of Loose Lips, with Tommy Tiernan and Mags Treanor. The pair launched Galway’s first ever Story Slam last month which saw huge success

Everyone has a story, and Loose Lips offer a stage and a microphone to members of the audience who can tell their story, provided it is true, unscripted and doesn’t take longer than five minutes. Each month’s session is inspired by a different theme, and this month the theme is ‘embarrassment & blunders’. The story slam takes place every last Wednesday of the month, and is limited to ten stories.

Last month saw a full house where an awestruck audience listened to stories related to the theme ‘siblings’. From the tragic story of one woman remembering her sister who was killed in a road accident almost 30 years ago, a young farmer on how, as a child, he and his sister blamed their younger brother for damage that they had caused on the farm, to one man’s story of how not having a sister meant having to invent one, one who gave him some great fashion advice! So whether you want to come along and listen, or tell your story, Wednesday the 31st is a night to put in your diary.

Given the popularity of this event and the fact that it is a small and intimate venue, advance booking is highly recommended.

If you wish to participate you can register on the night, when ten names will be pulled from a hat to decide who gets to tell their story.

Theme for this month’s Loose Lips event is Embarrassment & Blunders.
