Tues 28 July, 9pm
Legend is an open mic storytelling night. Our theme, inspired by the Tread Softly festival, is Love. Bring yourself and your story along, put your name in the hat and cross your fingers and toes. The only thing worse than getting up, is not getting up. Embrace the energy and authenticity generated by truth telling, so often more interesting and entertaining than fiction.
