Or if you were there, here’s your chance to relive it.
Blackshaw recorded the event and tomorrow (Sunday 20 December) at 6pm GMT you can listen to me and all the other storytellers do our thing on Wandsworth Radio.
Wandsworth Radio is an online station, so you don’t need to be in Wandsworth or London or even (I think?) in the UK to tune in.
What you won’t get from the recording is the intimate Diogenes Clubbish atmosphere of the room above the Horse and Stables that night – or (Schenectady Six-Pack podcast alumnus and) compère Duncan Gates’ Tron-meets-Walpurgisnacht devil mask (from Wintercroft).
What you will get is a great mix of personal accounts of ab-natural encounters, readings from prose work (extracts and full pieces) and performance poetry. And me doing live spoken word without notes for the first time. Listen out for the tremor in my voice. It was scary for me at least!
I recommend listening with the lights off and the curtains drawn. Here’s hoping for a dark and stormy night on Sunday.
