Tales is starting to feel that end of term vibe - we're getting excited and looking forward to bringing in a boardgame and sitting uncomfortably while classmate after classmate asks us 'What even is Settlers of Catan?' We'll be away in August in at the Edinburgh Fringe (tickets here https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/tales-of-whatever) but before we go we've got a great show for you on the 18th July.

Sarah Southern took up comedy after she was challenged to do stand up by her life coach. She first performed in spring 2017 and has been performing ever since. In July 2017 she had a sell out show at the Reading Fringe Festival in the joint show ‘Bant n’ Rants. She performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017; hosted a Royal Wedding Extravaganza comedy show in May 2018 at the Bill Murray and took a show called Wedding Guest Extraordinaire to Edinburgh in 2018. Sarah will be performing a preview of her new show Tentatively Tory.
She worked for the Tories for many years and helped get them elected in 2010. But nine years on, is she still true blue? This is a tale of elections, campaigning, Prime Ministers, negative equity, referendums and why David Cameron keeps appearing in her dreams. In a time of political turmoil, Sarah questions her political identity and whether she really is still a Tory in 2019.
Tales of Whatever Sheffield mixes seasoned performers and speakers, all sharing true stories of first-hand experiences. Hosted by Mark Powell and Lee Moore.
