True stories told live from the stage in London. Stories are told by everyday Londoners who have a great story to share.

True stories told live from the stage in London.

Expect the unusual, the hilarious, the tragic and the heart warming. Our storytellers have included teachers, car dealers and barristers - anyone with a story to tell is welcome.

"As the lights dim in the small Canal Café theatre in north-west London, a hush descends over the audience. The night is a sell-out - standing room only. But this crowd is not gathered to watch a famous play or a controversial comic; a glance at the bill reveals nothing so much as a D-list celebrity. No, they have flocked here for an evening of ordinary people talking about their experiences.

Welcome to Spark, Britain's first true-storytelling club night."
The Guardian
