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:
