Immerse yourself in tales and poems from around the world, as we rediscover the joy of being read to. From wild and windswept wonderlands, to fearless feminist fairytales, Story Café will spark your curiosity and freshen your perspective. So why not sit back and relax, top up your tea, and become part of the story.

Sci-Fi Story Café Special: Women Writing the ‘What if?’, Thursday 15th August, 12.30pm to 2.30pm, £2/Free, 18+, Women only

Women sci-fi writers transport us to utopias and dystopias, inviting us to consider ‘what would happen if?’. We’ll step into some of their otherworlds, seeing through the eyes of authors including Margaret Cavendish, Nalo Hopkinson and Tatyana Tolstaya as they take us through tree worlds, tundra and time travel from the 1660s to the present day.

‘I just felt like being in the GWL heals the soul/spirit/body/mind/everything’ – Story Café Attendee
