Debauched Tales

Debauched Tales is back with a second instalment of literary lust and wild wanderings
through the annals of erotic history and literature.Thanks to all of you who laughed,
guffawed, and generously shared your tales with us at our inaugural event way back in
March. We have decided to go bi-monthly which means every two months we will bring
you the finest of fumbling’s from our carefully curated erotic library, accompanied by some
juicy facts from the ages. Rest assured there’s more than enough to lewdness to whet
even the driest of appetites. We’ll also be taking a more thematic approach to the evening
so we can fully dig and delve into the rich soiling’s that history can afford.
May is upon us and the sap is rising. While cloistered monks & nuns cross and uncross
moistened thighs to waft the scent towards the sinful musk of summer, the ‘Pagans’ are at
it in fields, temples, lakes, festivals, and campsites, making the most of their dedication to
cosmic copulation. From horny Gods, knowing nymphs, Kama Sutra encounters through to
raunchy re-telling’s by the likes of Marlon James, our debauched readers will span time
and space for your titillation.
And if we inspire you, then why not fellate us with your own Debauched Tale? You can
perform a passage or excerpt on the night from your favourite sticky pages or slip your
story into the Confessions to Eros box for one of us to read on the night.
But above all let us leave our lit crit at the door as we invite you to slip onto something
more comfortable and let your ears do the work as our readers titillate, satiate and verbiate
for your pleasure.
Cloak and Dagger is an independent grassroots venue. This event takes place for over
18s only, downstairs in ‘The Carousel.’

This event is part of BRISTOL FRINGE FESTIVAL

To see what’s coming up visit The Bristol Fringe Facebook page:

Bristol Fringe Festival is launching its pilot year! Throughout July multiple venues across the city have come together to host a series of comedy, burlesque, theatre, performing arts and live music events, to showcase the incredible talent within the South West.

The aim is to bring Edinburgh Fringe Festival closer to home, allowing up and coming performers an opportunity to test out new material, giving the South West a platform for local talent and increasing tourism and trade to the city. We plan to do this every year, reaching out to more venues and more performers. July is a particularly challenging time for small venues and bars. Bristol Fringe Festival aims to get seats filled and pints in hands! All events are affordable or free!

Sponsored by Bristol City Centre BID, the British Association of Restaurants, Bars and Independents (Bristol), Cloak and Dagger and Loud and Funny CIC have been busy coordinating a program of events.

Expect stand up comedians, magic, family comedy shows, dance workshops, drag events and awesome bands.
