About Stories and Stovies

We all have a story to tell.

Watch This Space Productions in partnership with The Gilded Balloon bring a new creative storytelling programme to Edinburgh.

The Rose Theatre - Basement Theatre will host the monthly storytelling afternoon Stories & Stovies. The show will feature a mixture of professional storytellers and those who just enjoy spinning a yarn.

From comics to coders, authors to accountants, bloggers to bakers we want you to share your stories whether true, a complete fabrication or somewhere in between.

Each month our stories will be brought together by a central theme. The stories will be served up with a generous helping of stovies a traditional Scottish dish. We are delighted to be working with Wild Dining who will provide delicious, traditional or vegetarian stovies.

Age Guidance: All ages

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Stories and Stovies are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
