Simply the Best – Elle, Rachel & Scarlett
True stories told live across the UK. We kick off a brand new series with a bang – a birthday bang to be precise. Last year our beloved podcast turned ten years old... Yes ten! So to celebrate, we put on a best-of birthday bonanza at London’s prestigious Underbelly Festival Southbank. We invited storytellers old and new to retell one of their favourite stories from events past. Here’s three of the stories we heard there, each told by a Spark storytelling veteran. First we hear from our podcast producer Elle who tells us about the time she went to a not-so-elite sex party. Then we hear from event producer Rachel who talks us through a psychotic episode she once had without realising she was having it. And lastly we hear from Scarlett – Spark’s amazing host and one-time tea dealer – about a party she can’t quite remember but will never forget. For info on all upcoming events and dates for our brand new night at The Waverley Bar in Edinburgh visit ‘stories.co.uk’ and click the ‘events’ tab.

Interruptions - Peter
True stories told live across the UK. We’ve seen and heard a lot at Spark - stories that have made us laugh, cringe, cry, gasp, pause for thought, rethink everything. I’d thought we’d seen it all to be honest but in January this year, Peter McCleave took to the stage and asked us to save his life. That was a first. In 2016 Peter, a thirty nine year old triathlete and father of two, was diagnosed with a blood cancer called Myeloma and given seven years to live. Two years in, he now has five. But that doesn’t have to be the case. All Peter needs is someone who is a genetic match to donate their stem cells. In fact, that’s all most people in Peter’s situation need in order to survive. Trouble is around only two percent of the UK’s population is on the stem cell donation register. So Peter is on a mission to get that number up. Getting on the register is simple, pain free and could save someone’s life, so why not register today? To find out more visit: www.10000donors.comCan’t register but still want to help? You can donate to Peter’s just giving page here: https://bit.ly/2WL9QIv Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
