Come and listen to some tales of May madness, Mayans and a certain hairy rock star at Hand of Doom’s May-themed story nights in Kent.
They take place in Folkestone on Friday, May 19 at the Grand Hotel, The Leas, and the following evening, Saturday, May 20, in Faversham at The Guidhall, both from 7.45pm for an 8pm start.

We’re busy planning our next live storytelling event and we want more Kent writers to be part of it! We’re looking for a new short story or monologue that we can perform at our May event, taking place in both Faversham and Folkestone.
The theme of May is purposely vague, to encourage a wide range of entries. Think: May Day, Mayday (as in SOS), mayhem, maybe, Theresa May. Well, maybe not…
The winner will have their story or monologue read at both events and receive a cut of the profits (sadly never massive, but it’s still payment!). The winner will also get two free tickets for the venue of their choice (venues and dates to be confirmed shortly).
You can read the full details and rules here.
