About Story Room

Story Room is a new event every first Wednesday evening of the month at Henry’s Rooftop, The Steyne Hotel. The event has been postponed due to COVID-19 but will be resuming once the government indicates events are safe to attend. Karen Sander, the founder of Ageing Fearlessly, has been working on bringing something different by way of entertainment to Manly and the Northern Beaches.

Why Tell Stories?

Storytelling is what makes us human. We are the only living creature who has the ability to communicate through stories. Storytelling can foster inclusion and connection to others, build personal confidence and bring about change in our communities.

Story Room Manly allows audiences to connect to a storyteller; whether through humour, vulnerability or simply being open. Expect to laugh, cry and perhaps be transported to new and unfamiliar places. Stories bring communities together, creating a sense of belonging among those who may think they have nothing in common with others. The experience is uplifting for the storyteller and the audience.  

Come along and meet new people in a safe and friendly environment. Enjoy conversations and refreshments whilst basking in beautiful ocean views from the deck on Henry’s Rooftop Bar. At 7 pm the room will come alive with storiesas six storytellers from different walks of life share their life experiences based on a theme, changing monthly.

As the saying goes, everyone has a story. Perhaps you’d like to challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone and tell a personal story. Story Room welcomes you.
