On Monday night, five members of Lewisham Speakers, Julie, Steve, Richard,Windy and Flavia took part in a storytelling evening at the Canal Café, Little Venice. The event, was held by Lewisham Speakers club in collaboration with Spark London producer Joanna Yates.
The speakers took part in a 4 month storytelling workshop led by our President, Julie and assisted by Richard and Steve with the possibility of performance at the end of it.
At the rehearsal on Sunday afternoon, Joanna put the speakers through their paces using her coaching skills to bring out the best in each of us enabling us to improve our personal stories.
The evening was very exciting. The Canal Café is an intimate venue and the fee paying audience were warm and welcoming. Julie opened the evening with her “Funny bone” story and had the audience laughing with her anecdotes from her life last year and her gestures. Richard, Steve, Windy and Flavia also gave sterling performances, in particular, Windy considering he only completed his ice breaker a few weeks ago.
