This is a Club Night so only Club members and occasionally a special guest or two.


Beginner or Seasoned professional - Come and join us for an open mic session of storytelling.

About twice a month our two clubs - Strong Words and Liskeard Storytelling Cafe invite anyone to our weekly online meetings.

You can "come along" and tell a tale or come and listen.

Alongside our local tellers from here in the Southwest we regularly get people from all over the country and from as far as Eastern Europe America and Canada.



Something completely different. 

Rona has acquired the reputation of being “that something different”. Her presence alone is electrifying as there is an aura of mystery about her. Unique in her style and approach, her performance is slick and dynamic and yet gentle and moving at the same time, holding you in the palm of her hand as you wait, breathless with anticipation to hear the end of the story.

Rona Barbour – The Storyteller has been described as a mesmerising and hypnotic storyteller, with a voice like warm chocolate wrapped in soft velvet. 
This description made her roar with laughter while she remembered she was at one time described as “An Iron Fist in a Velvet Glove” which she thinks her family would agree, was probably much more fitting.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, one of 8 siblings to registered blind parents, Tommy, and Lizzie, she has incredible warmth and a very sharp sense of humour, mixed with the sense of the ridiculous that is indigenous to the people of that city. Coming from a long line of celebrated storytellers she has been writing and telling stories since childhood.

The Storyteller – Rona Barbour, has also been commissioned to do poetry and readings at Weddings and Funerals and her voice, pure and unforced, is sometimes described as being “like warm chocolate” as it adds the right weight to these occasions.
