TAVERN YARD TALES

with

DAVE TONG

Storytelling Café is a place of magic and mischief.  A place where you can enjoy delicious food or drink while sitting back and being whisked away to a world of wonderful stories that will amuse and enrich you.  

This month the Café is delighted to welcome Dave Tong, an itinerant teller of tales travelling the land, telling tales at museums, heritage sites, festivals, fairs and schools all over the UK.

This larger-than-life teller brings us tall tales, lusty lies and foul fabrications in a manner most uncommon for these times, but once enjoyed by all goodwives and honest jacks with no guarantees of satisfaction hereby given. 

Tavern Yard Tales is an evening of Stories about the 'common sort' - from women who did not know their place, to coney-catchers, the beguilers of the gullible who plied their trade in the very alehouses where the tales were so often told.. 

Dave is no stranger to Storytelling Café having performed here in 2015, mystifying the audience with his interactive and mesmerising style.  We look forward to hosting him again for what will surely be a splendid evening!  Imagine a Shakespearian tavern with a bit more comfort - and better wine.

Tickets £7 from the venue (0121 443 4725) or wegottickets.com

Doors open and food served from 6:30.  Performances begin 7:30.

Entrance via Fletchers Bar
