7-10pm, Thursday 19 SEPTEMBER TailSpin presents a pulse-quickening, funny-bone tickling, imagination-prickling evening of traditional stories, live music and performers who stretch the imagination and bend the truth…

KING OF LIES – with CLARE MUIREANN MURPHY
It is said that we are all born accompanied by 7 lies and 7 locusts… The King of Syria – obsessed with deception – has prepared a lying contest in his court, and year after year he cuts off the head of anyone who fails to tell him a new lie. With the piles of severed heads growing, CLARE MUIREANN MURPHY enters the fray to do and undo this cruel enchanted power play. Inspired by Rafik Schami’s book, ‘Damascus Nights’.

MUSIC FROM…
DIEGO BROWN AND THE GOOD FAIRY
If it doesn’t have a story it’s unlikely to make a song. And if it’s not a song, what’s the story?

If you want the facts, try these: guitar, banjo, ukelele, drum, accordion, fiddles, swannee, kazoos, cymbal, shakers, drawings, cake, prizes, fuzzboxes.

Be in with a chance of winning nearly two prizes.

Plus short stories from CATHLEEN MCCARRON and CAT GERRARD. & of course there will be the ubiquitous cake! Come early to order some delicious hotdogs, salads, slaws and sides from Street Kitchen or to sample The Miller’s excellent selection of beers, ciders, wines and cocktails…

Upstairs at The Miller, 96 Snowsfields Road, London Bridge, SE1 3SS

Thursday 19 September, 7-10pm. TICKETS: £6 on door. 50p off for cyclists.
