Tenx9 is a storytelling night where 9 people have up to 10 minutes each to tell a real story from their lives. Each night has a theme. Read about our upcoming events here.
the cosiest night in belfast’s social scene

we love stories

everybody has a story. ordinary stories, extraordinary stories, stories that delight, entertain, educate, stories that make you laugh, think, hope and cry. stories are the raw material from which we live our lives. 


 fiction is great, but tenx9 is not  for fiction stories. our events are for telling real stories only. 

each month has a theme, and it's amazing how one theme can produce so many varieties of story.  

everybody has a story. come and share or come and listen.

Starting Tenx9 where you are





everybody is welcome

we hold our events in open spaces and our storytellers are a mixture of people from a variety of backgrounds, identities and ideologies. 

we've had people read stories, tell stories, sing stories, use powerpoint, bring little items, get us dancing, and doing action songs. 

nobody is forced to tell a story, so feel free to come and enjoy the goodness.

please note that while we have plans to  put some audio of stories up on line, we do not allow audience members to record/broadcast/publish stories without permission both of the storytellers and of Tenx9
