Tall Tales

After another hiatus (here’s a tip for would-be literary festival organisers: don’t immediately start working 60 hour weeks when your festival ends) we’re back to filling you in on what happened during any events you couldn’t get to. This is an easy one – it’s mainly photos. It’s hard to livetweet a night of comedy stories without giving away the gags, which would be even more of a shame since many of the performers at Tall Tales are taking their TT work to Radio 4.

If you liked Tall Tales, it takes place regularly on the final Thursday of every second month at the Good Ship in Kilburn.
