Cold Feet

What could be better on a cold winter’s night than curling up in a nice intimate spot to hear some of your favourite writers spin a tale? This winter we present three nights of storytelling in The Moat, featuring three stories each night from the best talents in town. All you have to do is turn up, wrap yourself around a warming beverage, picture an open fire and let yourself be carried away on a wave of imagination.

Love can be a frosty mistress, as our storytellers explain with their tales of doomed romance and hot winter lovin’. Featuring Carrie Tiffany, Deborah Robertson and Chris Womersley, and curated and presented by Chris Flynn.
