York Story Slam: 2020 Grand Slam
York Story Slam is a monthly gathering where anyone can take a turn at the microphone and tell a true story based on that month’s theme.
Guests can come and simply listen to other people tell stories, or they can put their name into the hat for a chance to share a story according to the following rules:
• Story should reflect the theme of that evening
• Story should be true to the best of your recollection
• Should be your story – you are the/a central character
• Story should be about five minutes long
• No notes, no props – just you and the microphone
Each storyteller is given scores based on content and presentation. The storyteller with the top score at each event earns a spot in the Grand Slam event at the end of the season, when all the winners from that year return to vie for the title of York’s Best Storyteller.
This year’s Grand Slam will be presented as a livestream premiere via YouTube. Tune in to watch 11 storytellers onstage at the Capitol Theatre, and cheer them on in the chat throughout the event. One will be the new Grand Slam champ.

Our 2020 season is presented with generous support from KBG Injury Law.
