La Cat Explore, the home of oddity and the offbeat, announces the Story-smelling Salon on Tuesday 12 November, at 7pm. We are seeking writers and storytellers to provide the tales - from poetry to prose, from modern life to the mythical and marvellous. While the storytellers read or recite, the blind-folded audience will experience the touch, whispers and smell sensations within the story, as brought to life by a cast of volunteers. Recreating the magic of a late-night storytelling session for your adult selves, the event is not to be missed!

Send your most sensation-packed, smell-filled, touchable tales by email to if you would like to be involved, or, if you'd prefer to act as part of the volunteer crew on the night, please drop us an email.

Deadline for submissions: Monday 21st October.
