F*cked Up Fairytales

Book tickets
19 Aug

The dark, the twisted, the sensual and the obscene.

London based storytelling and music group The Embers Collective present an evening of fairytales and songs simply not fit for children. From a cannibal mum, to a re-telling of Sleeping Beauty fit for the post #metoo world, you’ll never look at Disney’s versions in the same way again.

Come immerse yourself in The Embers Collective’s distinctive take on storytelling- tales of old with a modern twist, all woven into an ever-evolving musical landscape.

This event has both seated and standing options. To ensure you get a seat please arrive early – doors open from 7pm.
