Are You Sitting Comfortably?

7.30pm. £8

We invite you to join us in the Arts Bar & Café for original short stories written by Londoners and read aloud by the team at White Rabbit. There will be music, laughter and perhaps some bruised knees for this Olympics special, because in case you hadn't noticed London plays host to a very special sporting event this summer!

Following the storytelling, weather permitting, we will be joining in the athletic spirit, in our own topsy-turvy way, by hosting sports day activities, embracing winners and losers everywhere. You can expect to compete in egg and spoon, three legged and sack races in the courtyard outside.

And if that wasn't enough, as a summery treat we will be putting on a complimentary, quintessentially English spread with cucumber sarnies and cream tea.

The winning writers are…Iain Gonoude, Michael Mac, Louise Irwin, Incidently Bentley, Mary Paterson, Nuala Walsh, Mike Murphy, Steve Keyworth, Alan Fielden

White Rabbit's Are You Sitting Comfortably? is a unique story-telling cabaret event. It provides writers with the opportunity to have their stories read aloud by performers as well as the chance to be published by their partners Ether.

Are You Sitting Comfortably? has toured to many spectacular venues in the UK including National Theatre, Thames Festival, Diamond Jubilee Pageant, Toynbee Studios, Wandsworth Arts Festival, Islington WORD2012 Festival, The Basement and Jackson's Lane.
