‘Bedtime Story Nights' have been running at 40 Winks since June 2009. They are deliciously decadent and glamorous, taking the idea of a pyjama party but infusing it with amazing stories, music and cocktails. They have had recommendations and rave reviews in The Evening Standard, The Independent, The Telegraph, The Observer, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, Stylist, Tatler, Marie Claire, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Le Cool, Daily Candy and too many other publications to mention without sounding immodest.... although we could also tell you that they have been included in the Saturday Times list of the '60 Best Things To Do In Britain', have had several Critics Choice awards in Time Out and even popped up in a Sunday Times Travel Magazine hot list of the 14 most amazing things to do in the world!!
Our story nights are a totally unique experience in London, bursting with genuine charm, warmth and humour. We work with a fantastic team of professional storytellers, actors and musicians, handpicked for their virtuosity by Mr Carter. They are a much loved institution and will have you squealing with delight for months to come.
We used to have at least one event every month, but with the launch of our 'Supernatural' evenings in 2016 we are now putting on fewer shows. This means that they do sell out incredibly quickly... often months ahead! Upcoming dates include 'TALES OF LOVE, PASSION AND LUST' for Valentines on the 8th February and 9th February 2017 (SOLD OUT), 'TALES OF GOTHIC HORROR AND VAMPIRE LOVE' on the 10th of May (SOLD OUT), 'TALES FROM THE GRAVE' on the 7th of June (SOLD OUT), and 'TALES OF NAUGHTINESS' on the 13th of July (SOLD OUT). Our latest dates include 'TALES OF THE HEART' on the 20th of September (LIMITED AVAILABILITY), 'TALES OF NAUGHTINESS' on the 22nd of November (SOLD OUT) and 'TALES TO CHEER YOU UP' on the 14th of December (LIMITED AVAILABILITY). To get all the details on these amazing shows and all future dates, please make sure you join our mailing list.
