Calling all early birds

Posted by Emily Webb on 11th January 2019

Come and play at the Ministry of Stories’ 8 ½ birthday.

Once a year we come together to celebrate the young writers who have come through our doors and to say thank to everyone who has made it possible for us to make a home for writing.

Our birthday parties are an opportunity to hear exciting work from our young writers, play party games and win Nick Hornby’s fiendishly difficult quiz (start swotting up on Arsenal facts now…), as well as bid on some brilliant experiences and prizes.

Join in the fun while raising money to enable us to continue to offer young writers in east London a place to grow and find their voice.

We are delighted to offer our party guests an early bird discount:

  • Tickets £160 (full price £175)
  • Table for eight guests £1,250 (full price £1,350)
  • VIP Table for eight guests £2,000 (8 of the best seats in the house, includes; special thanks in event programme, limited edition 8 ½ birthday poetry anthology, 3 quiz cheats) – full price £2,250

Tickets can be bought here. But be quick, our early bird lasts until 31 Jan. If you’d like to pay by cheque of BACS, please contact

All the money we raise will support the Ministry of Stories to continue to welcome young people through our doors to develop their writing skills and grow in confidence.
