What to expect

Come and take part in a unique, FREE training course leading up to a live public performance – sharing real stories of LGBTQ+ experience in Gloucester

Every Wednesday night, for 8 weeks, join a small group of other aspiring storytellers and learn how to make brilliant audio interviews.

Together, we'll collect LGBTQ+ stories from across Gloucester – and learn the art of listening, capturing, recording, editing, producing and even performing (!) compelling candid conversations.

You'll get access to recording equipment and editing tools, coaching from KLS Associate Artist Charlotte Everest and the chance to meet other interesting people in a relaxed, welcoming environment.
