So why not sit back and relax, top up your tea, and become part of the story.

Story Café Special: Open Scroll          (開卷) with Ricefield Arts, Thursday 26th September, 12.30pm to 2.30pm, £2/Free, 16+, Women only

It’s a huge pleasure to welcome Ricefield Arts to Story Cafe, to celebrate the words of Chinese women writers. We’ll be exploring the subtleties of translation and story-telling through the eyes of contemporary writers including Lo Mei Wa and Yan Ge.

Discussions will be in English, and readings will be in both English and Chinese (Cantonese / Mandarin) and you may find some of these works in Ricefield Arts Chinese Library collection. For more details, please visit http://ricefieldgogreen.org.uk/library

So lovely to talk to other people, to sit back and listen to extracts from books. So glad I came!’ – Story Café participant
