Please note Grant’s True Tales, a global series of storytelling events presented by Grant’s Blended Scotch Whisky, has cancelled its Toronto Spring Series as of April 20th.
Grant’s True Tales, a global series of storytelling events presented by Grant’s Blended Scotch Whisky, is soon to start its Toronto spring series featuring stories with a “family theme”. The series will run from April 4th to April 26th at the Brazen Head Irish Pub on Wednesdays and at the Bedford Academy on Thursdays. The family storytelling theme is a natural; every family has a story and the Grant family has a rich one that spans five generations of creating whisky with care and craftsmanship.
WIN a trip for 2 to Scotland! Enter Grant's True Tales Global Contest HERE before June 30th, 2012.
In a virtual friends world these evenings of real-life connections are designed to inspire, entertain and unite. Building on the success of the Toronto Grant’s True Tales summer series, storytellers and Grant’s whisky lovers can again look forward to sharing and connecting through the art of storytelling.
Storytellers are invited to come out and share their family-inspired tales at:
Brazen Head Irish Pub (165 East Liberty Street) – Wednesdays at 8pm
Bedford Academy (36 Prince Arthur Avenue) – Thursdays at 8pm
Hosts for the spring series are film and theatre actor, Ali Kazmi, teller of tales of misadventure, Rick Langrehr, and “Sammy the Comic” Sam Lupovich.
Beth-Anne Perry, National Brand Manager of William Grant & Sons underscores that, “Storytelling is special to Grant’s and we are delighted to be a part of its worldwide revival. Sharing a tale is a charming, connecting way to spend a social evening with family and friends”.
Launched in Manchester England, Grant’s True Tales was first introduced to Toronto in summer 2011 as a lively eight-week open mic series.
