Coming Soon

Welcome to a new season of

The GuestHouse

Our autumn season starts with an open evening of stories from the floor on the theme of metamorphosis, transformation, and other tales of creatures great and small. Each of our open evenings has a theme, intended to provide a stimulus to imagination, but if you have story you are longing to tell, you are always welcome to adapt, invent, subvert or ignore the theme.

We will also be having a professional performer in October or November – we are currently waiting for confirmation – and our usual end of year celebration in December with ‘Winter Tales to Warm the Heart’. More news to follow soon.

In the meantime. Newhaven’s own storyteller Jamie Crawford, who you may have seen recently doing his ‘Green Man of Knowledge’ show at the GuestHouse, is doing several storytelling events in the Newhaven Festival including a performance on September 9th. Scroll down for more details.

THE GUESTHOUSE NEEDS HELPERS TOO!

We are looking for people to assist us with the cafe, set up, finance and general planning of events, so if you can spare some time to help us run the club we would love to hear from you.
