Story Swap Cafe


Where the price of a drink is a story.

In our first Story Swap Cafe, in 2014, we collected over 1000 stories in a month. It was clear: either people wanted to tell stories, or they really wanted free tea. Both are probably true.

Since then the Story Swap Cafe has re-emerged at Migration Matters Festival, the Sheffield Creative Guild and, most recently, along the Sheffield-Tinsley Canal

You can listen to some of the stories from Migration Matters collected here:

And a selection of birthday stories from the Creative Guild’s 1st birthday here:
