Category: Storytelling

Birmingham Storytelling Cafe presents Shonaleigh, word weaver and tradition bearer, with the story of Eve's Three Beautiful Daughters.

This story belongs to the Cycle of Hillel, which is the first of twelve epic, latticed, interlinked cycles of stories passed down through generations of Jewish women.   When Adam and Eve are thrown out of paradise, they are each given a number of gifts.   Among the gifts given to Eve is a bag of treasure.   Not treasure of gold, silver, or jewels, but treasure of a far more precious nature: five hundred and forty-seven herbs, seeds, and plants that will cure all mortal ills. This is a rare chance to hear these ancient tales in the light and on the tongue, stories untold for two generations and barely spoken of for decades.

But that is not all!   You will also be regaled with stories from your very own Cafe Crew who will be there to fascinate and amuse throughout the evening.

Food served from 6.30, stories start at 7.30.   Tickets are £7 - you can get them in advance from or from the venue 0121 443 4725
