Adventures and Ancient Greece

The Cafe Crew

Wednesday 16th September


2500 years ago, the Greeks met the Persians at Thermopylae and a legend was born. This month, enjoy Storytelling Café’s tales of courage, of battle, of betrayal and of heroes standing firm in the face of impossible odds. But fear not – this phalanx respects social distancing! So pour yourself a drink, fire up Zoom and settle in for stories of high adventure.

If you don't already have the Zoom link to join us on the night, email Chris on

The event is free to attend, but donations will be greatly appreciated!



I just wanted to thank you and all the tellers I was able to enjoy and listen in with yesterday.  'Twas lovely!  Sorry I needed to depart mid Kit's story...I chanced it by not leaving before as I so wanted to hear it.

     Grateful,  Tracy


Storytelling Cafe was a most enjoyable evening.  There was a good mix of myth, magic and mayhem.... nicely linked with chat which is always fun as are the little yellow clap symbols. For those that are quick with unmuting and re-muting it was good to hear a few hands clapping.
