The next tenx9 is

Thursday February 16th

The Glad cafe

Doors 7:30pm -  first story 8pm


Theme: Secrets

We are looking for all kinds of stories about Secrets. We’d love to hear about your secret escapes; passions; histories or admirers!  Or you might want to share your secret to happiness... or light fluffy scones - anything on the theme as long as it is a real story.  Mostly though we need people who can’t keep a secret to come along and disclose the undisclosed.

For those new to Tenx9 - it's a storytelling format that began in Belfast in 2011. Each night nine people have up to ten minutes each to tell a real story from their lives. It's wonderful, it's always free, it's for ordinary people telling great stories, and it's happening in your city. The first Glaswegian evening was in January 2015.  

Tenx9 Glasgow is delighted to be hosted by Rona MacDonald and located at the Glad Cafe (1006a Pollokshaws Road - map here) The plan is to have four Tenx9 events in Glasgow a year. The Wire magazine called the Glad Cafe one of the hippest joints in the city and if the flapjacks are anything to go by, they're right. 


Rona, having been to a few Tenx9 evenings, was eventually talked into getting up there and telling a story. She turned out to be GREAT and the logical next step was to talk her into hosting. 

She agreed and the world is a happier place. 

Rona fits far too much into a very busy life but is happy and fulfilled by the majority of it. She spends her time between Glasgow (working for Glasgow Life, being a mum, hosting Tenx9) and the Outer Isles (dreaming, walking, dancing).
