Gruesome true tales and murderous folk songs combine in this evening from Bristol's Sharp Teeth Theatre and award-winning storyteller and author of Bristol Urban Legends, Wilf Merttens.


Wilf Merttens is an award-winning storyteller based in London and Bristol. Last year The History Press published his book Urban Legends of Bristol, and he'll be telling the terrifying tale of Bristol's Book of Skin alongside other tales. Wilf has performed at Shambala, Valleyfest amongst other places and runs inspiring workshops that help people of all ages and abilities learn what magnificent performers they all are.

Sharp Teeth's Stephanie Kempson was a storyteller-in-residence at BBC Introducing in the West's Folk residency at the National Centre for Folk Arts in 2015. Alongside musicians, Stephanie expands on classic folk songs using storytelling techniques to create an exciting fusion.

This event is curated by Sharp Teeth Theatre, who run the popular multi-art-form monthly nights 'Sharp Teeth Presents...' at The Wardrobe Theatre and who have co-run the storytelling and poetry stage at Valleyfest for the last two years. Stephanie Kempson also directed Bristol Old Vic's and SS Great Britain's Spooky Ship for the last two years.
