Recalling sultry summer evenings in the Deep South, when moths fluttered to lit porches as friends gathered to spin spellbinding yarns, this is a live experience like no other. From modest origins in New York, The Moth is now an international phenomenon dedicated to celebrating the power of unscripted, first-person storytelling. From ordinary folk to celebrities and cultural giants, the stage is open to anyone with a flair for telling tales. Join us for one special night of true life stories with the special theme ‘Milestones’ in honour of the Festival’s 70th anniversary.

Milestones: Prepare a five-minute story about anniversaries. Years in a partnership, job or the place you call home. A month, a decade – time that flew while you weren’t looking. Paper or bronze … extra points if you make it to platinum. Celebration or reflection. Reckoning with the past while plotting the course ahead. Here’s to the happy ones!
