Backstories – Inglewood

Saturday March 27, 2021
16:30 - 18:30

Backstories is a multi-sited storytelling festival located in the suburbs of Perth and beyond. Spend a lazy afternoon with friends and family in the comfort of your neighbour’s backyard and enjoy hearing from two trained storytellers. Bring a picnic, something to sit on, and put your mingling hat on, it’s going to be a rippa arvo.

Our Inglewood location features storytellers Ryan Steed and Sam Leung, and facilitated by Annabel Smith. Music from Tu Hus and art curated by Häxa House.


WHAT TO BRING

Bring your own snacks, drinks, or even a picnic dinner. If you’d like to be comfortable, bring a picnic blanket or fold-out chairs.


A NOTE ON ATTENDANCE

Please note that although this is a FREE event, RSVP is essential. The exact location of this event will be emailed to ticket holders on Thursday 25 March. Please check your junk mail as our emails often find their way into spam/junk.
