Tonight was such a fantastic night. The snow kept some people from being able to join us, but we had a huge crowd and were delighted to have you with us. 

We heard stories about working in a production line of Care Bears; negotiating with Bankers; dancing and eating your way through Cuba; trying out your flirting moves while working on the popcorn counter at the Lisburn Omniplex; lines of wisdom from granddads about warm pennies and dollars and hands; parents whose investments were taken from them; dirty dancing on the beach at Ballycastle; dirty money for dirty jobs; and petrified nights of money being stolen from the downstairs room. 

As always, thanks to our generous storytellers. Jason, Chelley, Preeti, Laurie, Susan, Lorraine, Nuala, Caroline and Cath. It was a wonderful night -  many, many thanks. 

Our next theme is 'Home' on February 18th at 7.30pm in the Black Box. Homes you've loved, homes you've left, looking for a home, being forced from a home, having no home, having a dream of a home, homes you've desired and homes you've destroyed. Nine people with up to ten minutes each to tell a real story from their lives. 

If you have a story to tell, have a look at the editorial guidelines and get in touch. We're always glad to hear from you.
