OneTrackMinds - Wilton's


Everyone has a story about the song that changed their lives.

23rd February to 24th February . 7:30pm to 9:30pm .
Tickets £6 - £12

OneTrackMinds is a live storytelling event about the way in which music affects the way we live our lives.

An entertaining cross between Desert Island Discs, The Moth Radio Hour and TED Talks, OneTrackMinds sees a selection of six guests each night, sharing stories about a song that inspired their work, made them fall in love, or changed their lives.

Previous guests have included virtuoso percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie, poet and playwright Lemn Sissay, novelist Joe Dunthorne, comedian and DJ John Robins, and comedy writer David Quantick.

Returning to Wilton’s after their first shows in May 2016, OneTrackMinds presents a thought-provoking and engaging way of thinking about the music we love.
