The End Of The Story

For 15 years Storytelling Cafe at Wednesbury Library has been legendary in the storytelling world. Many of the top British and international tellers have performed there as well as many new and emerging storytellers.  We have finally reached the point where funding is no longer available for us to continue so next Tuesday, 19 March will be our final Wednesbury Storytelling Cafe.

We already have the show,"The Stories that Shakespeare Forgot" booked for the night (see below). There will also be one or two well known faces from the past who will be joining us and we will have the full buffet supper that we remember of old. We may even find a few bottles of wine so we can go out in style.

We hope that you can come along to help us celebrate this final Storytelling Cafe and say farewell to all of those who have have been an important part of its success over the years.

Tickets £5/£2.50 (Only £3.00/£1.50 for members)

To book your tickets call in at the library or call 0121 556 0351. 

Stories that Shakespeare Forgot

We all know that Shakespeare was a man of wit.  He was also a scavenger, picking up an idea here, a rhyme there, a story wholesale if he felt like it.  He lived in a time that was rich in folk tale and legend and some of those stories are still with us today.  Storytellers Studio bring you some of the stories that Shakespeare forgot to mention and other stories that parallel his plays.  They will bring them back to life with charm, style and skill – and maybe a little twist of their own.
