The platform party

Here are the "turns" who told their stories at our first event at The Compass N1 on Wednesday night.

Starting on the left we have Dragan Aleksic who spoke about how he surrendered to a temptation every visitor to an art exhibition has felt; Sue Elliott, who recounted the journey to find her birth mother as documented in her book "Love Child", writer and broadcaster Andrew Collins wondering whatever happened to car-sickness, host Kerry Shale and me obscuring Chris Difford, who talked and sang about going back to Ireland with his mother.

Our first True Stories Told Live event takes place at The Compass in Islington on Wednesday September 16th. It's on the corner of Chapel Market and Penton Street. The nearest tube is Angel, although it's not far from King's Cross. There's a map here. We start at seven o'clock so that people can come straight from work and we aim to finish by nine. We'll be in the small room above the main bar/restaurant therefore numbers are limited. If you want to come please get in touch at
