This month’s Storyteller’s Café is set to thrill, chill and enthral you with a collection tales for a winter's night.

Featured tellers this month have been selected from our own talented Cafe members and we are pleased to be able to take this opportunity to showcase your stories.

There are a few time slots still available, so if you would like to add a haunting tale, love story, or thrilling adventure to help keep out the cold, please email Holly at with your name and a contact number and perhaps a brief description of your story.
