Cambridge Storytellers: 7th Annual Cambridge Contest of Liars

October 19 @ 7:30 pm9:30 pm

£6 – £8.00

Can you tell truth from lie?

Cambridge Storytellers are proud to present their annual Liars’ competition at Cambridge Junction. Meet some of the finest liars in East Anglia, as they try to blind you with science and pull the wool over your eyes with a collection of tall tales, outrageous fibs, and alternative versions of the truth.

There will be a prize for the winning lie! For a chance to enter the competition and win the prize, just send Cambridge Storytellers no more than 300 words about yourself and about the lie you would like to tell.  Or come and vote for the lie you find most plausible, most entertaining, or most far-fetched.

Judges include the notable liar Billy Bullshit, aka the storyteller Hugh Lupton, and other local connoisseurs of untruth from the worlds of academia and politics and Morag Styles, storytelling enthusiast and emeritus Professor of Children’s Poetry. Audience suitable for children and adults age 12 years and above. Tickets are £8.00 (adults) and £6.00 (concessions).

Part of the Cambridge Festival of Ideas.
