New WCBA Club Night a success

Last Tuesday, around 25 WCBA members and friends gathered the Library Bar for a cosy and fun storytelling session.

A couple of comments from the night:

'It was wonderful to greet new members and see long established members at this event. The storytelling by everyone was superb, with each person bringing a different feel and style. Club night looks set to be a wonderful addition to our member events every 3rd Tuesday of the month.' 

'... lots of positive feedback about the lovely room and the conviviality. I'm so pleased - it's nice to have a less formal way to gather that requires less planning and means people mix and mingle more. ...'

Others commented that it was great to chat to members they hadn't met before - and everyone enjoyed the five storytellers.

We loved the offerings from those who were billed. They included veteran storytellers Marie Murdoch and Moira Wairama, plus - making her storytelling debut - Holly Gooch. And it was awesome to have two more people add their names to the blackboard on the night and tell enthralling tales: Carol Jenkins and Jean Lloyd.

Pencil in Tuesday 19 October for the next WCBA Club Night. This time our theme will be: What makes a classic children's book?  Everyone is encouraged to bring their own contenders.

More details soon ...
