Cornwall Heritage Trust started presenting their virtual story cafes in January 2021. They have been a great success so far, and we are planning to roll out more online events until it is safe for the real story cafes to take place again.
We are very grateful to Cornwall Community Foundation who helped to fund our virtual story cafes.
We will be adding the recordings of all the story cafes onto this page, please keep checking after each event for the video links.
