“Yes!! Bedtime Story Nights – what a simply splendid idea!!” Carter was experiencing an explosion of emotions he hadn’t felt since that time he got to sit on Matron’s lap during the great measles epidemic back when he was still in his 2nd year at Worstwick Park. Nestling his head against her warm and ample bosom, he had followed the adventures of Tim, Ella and Gertrude and their battles against the evil Minipotions. A cracking yarn which all started when… Sorry, I digress. Bedtime Story Nights are starting at 40 WiNKS, and will no doubt bring back many equally happy memories for you all.

When:
Wednesday 3 June – “Love and Longing”
Wednesday 17 June – “Stories to Make you Dream”
Wednesday 1 July – “Love and Longing”
Wednesday 15 July – “Stories to Make You Dream”

Times:
7:00 – 10:00 PM

Drinks and nibbles will be served on arrival and during the interval with the first story starting when the small hand reaches 8.

Dress code:
Strictly pyjamas, nightgowns, dressing gowns and other ‘appropriate’ nightwear. We would also suggest you bring a small cushion and a hanky (in case you are moved to tears). Please feel free to bring hot water bottles, blankets (particularly those with the satin edging along the top) Teddy Bears and anything else that makes you feel warm and safe (not matron or nanny unless you are paying for them too).

Price:
£20 per person per night (includes wine and nibbles).

Where:
40 WiNKS
109 Mile End Road
London E1

Email reservations@40winks.org to confirm your booking and arrange payment.

VERY IMPORTANT!!

IS THIS THE FUTURE?

UNUSUALLY INTOXICATING...

Bompas and Parr specialise in creating strange and spectacular culinary events…. Their most ambitious project yet is “Alcoholic Architecture’, which takes place later this month in London. Not recommended for those of you with a serious drink problem, the show allows you to experience what it is like to be inside a giant cocktail, soaking up gin and tonic mist and rubbing shoulders with giant limes!! Refreshingly different, so check it out…

Bedtime Story Nights at 40 WiNKS by Kelli

On a more modest note, David’s new boutique hotel, 40 WiNKS, is also planning to organize its own program of Strange and Wonderful events. David has been talking to Spoken Ink, a new audio book site devoted to short stories (www.spokenink.co.uk). They are not officially launching until June 09, but David has had his ear pressed to the ground and wants them to put on a series of intimate ‘Bedtime Story Nights’ at 40 WiNKS with tales of Love, Longing and Lust.. Also under discussion is a possible collaboration with the very talented Scottish installation artist, Laura Yuile. David is very keen on the idea of a burlesque inspired shadow puppet show to be performed in the windows of the house, but from what I can gather I am not sure that Laura necessarily shares his enthusiasm. I will keep you posted on all the dates, creative differences and behind-the- scenes gossip, but David is hoping to have the first events up and running in June… so keep logging on to alacarterstyle! Numbers will be strictly limited.
