Grant’s True Tales comes to Manchester

A night of special guest story tellers and warming whisky

Published on September 29th 2010.


Grant’s True Tales comes to Manchester

Grant’s True Tales assembles storytellers from around the world to entertain audiences with compelling, moving and downright funny true stories based around the theme of family.

Everyone loves a good story, and most have a tale to tell themselves. True Tales brings together simple yet potent ingredients: great storytellers, enthralling true stories and, of course, Grant’s Whisky.

Special guest storyteller Alistair McGowan will be the main event when True Tales visits Manchester, for an evening at the Town Hall on October 8th.

There’s been something of a resurgence in storytelling events recently, and True Tales will be bringing this universal experience to a dramatic venue for a special evening of stories shared over Grant’s Whisky.

McGowan is, of course, a well-known TV impressionist and stand-up comic, famed for his impersonation of former Manchester Utd star David Beckham. He’ll be sharing a story on his own family with Grant’s guests – a subject he recently explored through the BBC’s ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’

Also on the bill that night is Peter Aguero, lead singer of New York’s storytelling BTK Band; blogger and photographer Julie Kertesz, who tells of her dramatic escape from being sent to Auschwitz as a child; Rajesh Thind, a film director, producer and writer from India, and David Stevenson, a director at the Royal Opera House. David’s story is centred around his unconventional family structure and the impact this had on the conservative community in which he was raised.

Everyone who turns up on the night will be welcomed with a Grant’s True Tales cocktail and encouraged to complete a ‘tell your own story’ card, for display at the event.

Guests also get a True Tales goody bag.
