The Summer evenings have been portrayed as times to sit outside and soak up the last rays of sunshine.
But, who can guarantee that anymore?
What we at StoryTelling Corner can guarantee is an evening of entertainment from a mix of artists from the world of storytelling, poetry and music.
Tuesday, 30th July at Temperance Cafe, we will have storytellers, poets and a musician to provide an evening to suit all tastes and ages.
At the moment we have two poets, two storytellers and a musician which means space for at least one more storyteller.
I am, personally, grateful for the help of so many people to put this programme together and will be announcing our charity of choice very soon.
Last month's StoryTelling Corner raised over £60 for the Hibbs Lupus Trust, thanks to the efforts of Rhianna, Roger, the staff at Temperance and, of course, the audience.
We all invite you to three hours of cordial entertainment on the 30th July.
We welcome our two poets for the 30th of July, Pat Spence is a freelance copywriter, novelist and performance poet. Books include
paranormal YA series, ‘The Blue Crystal Trilogy’; chick lit novel, ‘Abigail’s Affair’; a collection
of short horror stories, ‘Truly, Madly, Creepy’; and ‘Mad Bad Poetry for a Mad, Bad World’, a
book of contemporary, satirical and humorous verse. Regularly performs at events,
sometimes as alter ego, punk poet, Jan Cooper Clark. Hobbies include gardening, guinea-
pigs, yoga, spells.
Judith Weir has been described as ‘a business women by day, social butterfly and poet by night’. She has been writing poetry, in her spare time, for less than two years on special subjects, lifestyle and personal events that have inspired her.

Adam Szecowka: Having Asperger's and with 2 amazing sons on the spectrum. I have my own unique and traumatic experiences in my journey. From my own challenges whilst at school, through to my working life and bringing up a family. I was a person of very little confidence, lacking social skills etc. I have been through the most unimaginable circumstances no parents should ever experience. How did I change my life around completely? I share my own personal experiences.
