Our monthly storytelling circle is a fantastic way to start your Wednesday night. Our host this month is Gary Green. If you’ve ever heard Gary tell before you know that he brings a magical and unparalleled combination of myth and history, wit and charisma, suspense and charm. This special circle will also feature students of Gary’s recent Introduction to Storytelling class. We are excited to welcome these new tellers to the stage…and we welcome you too, of course! Anyone who wishes to tell a story – seasoned teller or first timer. Not up for telling a tale? Not to worry! Cozy up and enjoy – we always need listeners too! When we’ve clued up here, why not stroll down the street to The Ship for Folk Night? What more could you ask for on a Wednesday!
