Bedtime Stories at 40 Winks

The divine and decadent Bedtime Stories host two Angela Carter nights on the 17th and 18th of November. The amazing Sally Pomme Clayton and Cat Weatherill will be patron’s glamorous guest performers, with Chris Singleton sweetly serenading them at the end of each evening.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Angela Carter’s work, she was ranked tenth by The Times in their list of ‘the 50 greatest British writers since 1945’ and she will have a selection of very beautiful short stories and fairytales waiting for you.

The hauntingly beautiful Bedtime Story Nights, held monthly at 40 Winks, have had rave reviews in several glossy magazines and broadsheets and were even included in the Sunday Times Travel Magazine list of the 14 most amazing things to do in the world.

Their story nights are a totally unique experience in London, bursting with genuine charm, warmth and humour. Working with a fantastic team of professional storytellers and actors, assembled by Curator of Ever More Curious Tales, Miss Rachel Rose Reid, their latest programme has been devised to tease, tantalize and terrify in equal measure. Squealing with delight, sobbing and applauding wildly and enthusiastically are all encouraged. Falling asleep during the performances is not (fear not, this unlikely to happen).
