The New Curiosity Shop @ The Grit presents Kevin Walker: Queer Folk Tales and Beyond

January 28, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

It’s January, the weather outside is a bit grim, but down at The Grit we’re hosting a New Curiosity Shop storyteller special – An Evening with Kevin Walker: Queer Folk Tales and Beyond.

Kevin has been a performance storyteller for over twenty years and has performed all over the UK, Europe, and worked online during the pandemic. Having recently moved to Suffolk with his husband Martyn and their dog Daisy, Kevin now paints, writes, and works on his storytelling just a meander down the road from us here in Lowestoft.

In 2020 Kevin published Queer Folk Tales (History Press) and 2022 saw publication of his second collection Bhuddist Folk Tales. We’ve asked him to go wild with his selections for our evening, which will feature tales traditional and sometimes modern. Stories to show how LGBTQ+ people belong not only in today’s world, but also inhabit a storytelling tradition going back centuries, if not millennia. An opportunity to enjoy the exploits of characters who are romantic, brave, mysterious or fantastical, but always authentic. So do please join us for a fun filled evening of hilarity, pathos and drama.

Music will be provided by our very own DJ Vincent1000, who’ll be playing some tunes after the show when our regular Curiosity Shop Social spins out the evening.

Plus The Grit Café Bar for all your beverage requirements.
