What's nearly happened to you? Which projects were never realised, what roads not taken? Our Nearly stories may be funny, quirky or heart felt, tinged with regret or blessed relief. How do they relate to who we really are?
Join us for an entertaining and thought-provoking evening of conversation about what didn't quite - or hasn't yet.
Our host, Chris Ifso, writer, Fellow of the RSA and Doctor of Nearlyology, will be in Rawthmells all afternoon collecting short accounts of things cafe users have nearly done in their lives. In the evening, over an intimate sharing style supper he’ll read the Nearly Manifesto and share some of the stories he has collected. You can talk about your nearlies too and, if you’re feeling bold, share them with the group.
Make sure this isn’t one of the nearlies in your life! Tickets are £16 to cover the cost of dinner and a drink.
On the menu:
Nocellara and Uslu olives
Applewood smoked Cheddar and caramelised onion chutney straws
Blacksticks blue, Ragstone goats, Bowers brie, pickles
Toasted sourdough, olive oil
Spinach and kale falafel
H. Forman’s smoked salmon, pickled cucumber, lemon, capers

A glass of house wine or a mocktail
This evening is part of a series of events exploring how storytelling is, and can be, used for social change. You can read more about National Storytelling Week and our Change Stories campaign on the blog.
