Storytelling Cafe

Due to coronavirus and the need for social distancing, we were not able to run any sessions or cafes during lockdown.  However, we did run a series of virtual storytelling events and hope to return to real venues before too long.  See the column on the right for the latest newsletters!

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Storytelling Cafés have been our main spaces for performance storytelling, presenting the best national and international storytellers as well as providing a platform for local and emerging tellers.  Storytelling has always been a sociable occasion so, whatever the venue, we create a friendly and inviting atmosphere for you to enjoy the stories and share that with the people around you.  Refreshments are always available and sometimes a glass of wine or even a meal. 

Each Storytelling Café is different but they all offer excellent storytelling and a great night out.  With our Pop-Up programme we ran storytelling across the Midlands in a range of library and community venues throughout 2014 and 2015. 

The most recent venue was Alvechurch Storytelling Cafe with a series of events in autumn 2018 and another in autumn 2019.

Other venues that have been handed on to independent organisations are still flourishing. Take a look at:
