Lunch and Tales - Stories of travel, surprise, danger and the unexpected.

Sunday, Sept 8th, 2019

  • 12:00 PM 3:00 PM

  • Wandee Thai Kitchen, Allambie Heights (map)

Australian Storytelling Guild (NSW) Event

Come and enjoy a delicious Thai Restaurant lunch and Storytelling on the Northern Beaches. People who have previously attended have enjoyed food, stories and made connections with new people. There will be some local featured accredited tellers from the Australian Storytelling Guild (NSW) and also an Open mic where the audience members may share a story of no more than 5 mins.

The theme is 'Travelling Tales' - whether it be a journey from the lounge room to the kitchen, on the train to work or adventures from around the world. The stories may be true or drawn from the genres of myth, legend or folklore and they are sure to capture the humour, surprise, danger, the unexpected, delight and wisdom experienced by many a traveller. 

Those who have contributed to the afternoon with a story were delighted at the positive response from the group. There is no expectation to tell a story, you may just want to listen and eat delicious food or you may be spontaneously moved to tell a tale of intrigue, challenge or surprise from a journey you have taken. No afternoon is the same. - Different stories and different tellers!
