An Invitation to Everyone Who Loves a Good Yarn!
After six years of meeting during the day, the Ballarat Storytellers (BST) thinks it is mature enough to meet during an evening as well!
The first ever evening meeting will be held on Tuesday 23rd October at The Church Retro Cafe in Albert Street, Ballarat Central, opposite the TAFE buildings, from 7.30pm until 9pm.
Tea, coffee and cake will be available to purchase from the proprietors, who are opening especially for the event.
The Ballarat Storytellers are hoping to swell their membership which is currently free. A ‘hat’ is sometimes passed around to contribute to printing and postage costs, but that is all.
Six years ago a group of like-minded people gathered at a cafe by Lake Wendouree. The aim was to maintain the ancient art of storytelling and create an opportunity for people to develop their skills. Over the years the group has entertained a variety of audiences and had a lot of fun along the way.
Since its involvement with students from the Australian Catholic University, the BST wishes to encourage as many people as possible to enjoy listening to stories being told, not just read from books. There is a world of difference between the two activities. We would like everyone to enjoy this ancient art and dive into its refreshing waters, bathed in all the emotions it arouses and surface to see the world with different eyes.
All five of your senses will be stimulated on Tuesday 23rd October at The Church Retro Cafe so come along and be entertained or entertain! Indulge in the delicious food and drink on offer and be blown away by the decor. The proprietors will show you true Irish hospitality and we hope this will be the first of many such evenings.
135c Albert St, Ballarat Central
