Where are the FFFs? (First Friday Flings)
GAS meets at the lounge in Queen's Cross Church
Queen's Cross Church, with its big, silvery granite spire, is, as it suggests, beside Queen Vic's statue - which is on the roundabout just where Carden Place and Albyn Place meet and Queens Road begins. The church lounge is entered by the side door on Albyn Place and you just keep right until there are no more turns inside! Multimap link
We usually start with our guest, or if it's an open session, with whoever wants to tell a tale. Tellers and listeners are BOTH welcome! (Without the listeners, there would be no tales! You don't have to tell a story, it can be a joke, a song, a riddle, or just be a listener)
You can be guaranteed a hot drink and a biscuit when you come in - sometimes a bit of baking too so you'll leave replete in mind and body!
Would you like to contribute to GAS as a member? Membership of the association entitles you to discounts on workshops and an opportunity to get support developing your storytelling skills.
Current Membership Fees stand at £12 per year. If you would like to join, click HERE to download a form and submit it to the address given with a cheque made payable to Grampian Association of Storytellers.
We hope to offer support and mentoring on a more formal basis in the near future, watch this space!

Guest Night: Janis MacKay
(In Conjunction with WordFringe)
Tickets £5.00 on the door
Janis hails from Edinburgh, but now lives in Caithness, where she is a Writer in Residence. She tells traditional Scottish tales and world stories, including Native American stories and fairy tales. Stories that include the physical or mental transformations of characters into other beings are also a favourite theme. Janis often works with fellow teller, David Campbell on workshops and performances. This should be an excellent night for all ages.
