We tell stories all the time, about what we have done or not done, the stories we have heard from others, those we have read or simply remembered. The Mirthy Storytelling Café is an opportunity to both share stories and listen to them. This month’s theme is, All About Christmas; for some a Christian festival, for others holiday period, but whatever Christmas means to you it has ignited many stories about Santa Claus, reindeers, elves and of course the story of Jesus and how a bright star led the magi to the birth. We will tell and listen to stories about Christmas. Bring a story to tell to the group, or simply come to listen to a collection of stories about all things Christmas.

Meet the Host, Sandy
Sandy Leong is an historian, passionate about bringing history to life and is a lively and entertaining speaker. She has a popular series of entertaining, light hearted talks on general historical subjects. However she specialises in the Tudors, an exciting time in the country as it was changing fast; and in the Viking period, who are much more than the stereotype of raiders in horned helmets. She is an international, professional speaker, and published author.
Sandy got us thinking about where we live and then a story about dragons and concurring fear. I felt comfortable to share my thoughts and hear some interesting stuff from other participants. Sandy instilled me with the confidence to keep listening and telling stories.
Really enjoyed today's Storytelling Cafe. Sandy is a great host, helping you feel at ease and entertaining speaker.
