Open Tellers' Night at the Feast of Fools

Open Mic Snook The Carriage House at Delapre Abbey, Doors 7.00 for 7.30. If you've been to these evenings, you'll know we have a lovely welcoming atmosphere, in which to hear a great variety of stories from (usually) local tellers. These evenings are usually smaller than our professional guest nights, but every bit as important, and hugely enjoyable.

Since it's December, we're inviting stories with themes for the time of year, whether it's darkness and cold, Solstice, or warmth and festival. If you'd like to perform, please let Richard know in advance.

Meanwhile come, listen, and eat cake or flapjack, drink... though if you want stronger than tea or coffee please bring your own, which we aren't allowed to sell, but you're allowed to drink within the room.
Please see our "What, who" page if you've not been to our Open Mic sessions before, for more information.

The New Home

The Carriage House at DelapreDelapre Abbey is the lovely place so many Northamptonians tend to forget about, tucked away off the London Road in Delapre Park.
Here's our normal meeting place, the Carriage House. For occasional extra large guest nights, we hire the Dining Room in the main building.
The whole setting is a gorgeous place, and it belongs to our town, so it's great to be there now, as it's recently had a mighty refurbishment. Details are at and on their Facebook page

Details of how to locate it are on our map page, where you'll see a picture guide to finding your way in from the car park, which is the first thing you see on arrival.
There's also a bus stop at the end of the drive. It's nearly 1/4 mile from the road, if you're walking!
