Tenx9 at Greenbelt 2019

  • Tenx9 at 'The Leaves' @ Greenbelt Festival 2019 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Tenx9 is back at Greenbelt! Join us on Friday night for true stories on the theme of Shock. The event is at 7.30pm on the Friday night at the Leaves venue.

The theme for Greenbelt 2019 is ‘Shock’ - we are looking for a true story (not a sermon, not a reflection, not an essay) from your life about Shock. That electric shock you got; that shock you gave everyone when you turned up; that shock you got when you passed; that shock you got when you got the news. True stories, harrowing stories, sad stories, powerful stories, funny stories.

Tenx9 is a storytelling event where people have up to 10 minutes to tell a true story from their own lives — stories that shock, stories that delight. We’re not looking for reflections, or sermons, or morals, we’re just looking for a true story from your own life.

If you have a story you’d like to submit, have a read of our editorial guidelines and then send your submission via the submission form.

Also, Tenx9 has just begun on BBC Radio! Check out ’Tell Tales’ on BBC Sounds.

Tenx9 August 21, Belfast 'Getaway'

Well, it’s the end of the summer. We hope you had a getaway somewhere nice. A trip to Portrush, a trip with the family, a trip to the family, a trip from the family. Maybe you needed a getaway plan from a dreaded visit. Whatever your summer getaway was, we want to hear the story!

If you have a true story about Getaway (it doesn’t even need to be about the summer), we’d be delighted to hear about it. Read our editorial guidelines and send us a submission and we’ll be back in touch with you.

You know how it is — don’t touch the sharp knife; don’t play with matches; don’t go to that country that’s got a civil war happening; don’t run with scissors; don’t talk back to the teacher; don’t experiment your surgery skills on your little brother.

You remember it: the new pencil-cases; the dread of the new teacher; or the previous teacher; the catching up; the entering into a staff room for the first time; or the last time; returning to school having been away, or sick; returning to the school you never thought you'd see again.

It was the stuff of dreams!
