  • This event has passed.

Bread & Butter is a monthly dinner and storytelling event designed to make you think deeply about social issues. A new storyteller every month will share a personal story with an intimate audience in the dining room at the Centre for Stories. Come along and make new friends, hear a new story, and get to know your community. Compulsory: open ears and an open mind.

In August, we are hosting a special fundraising edition of our monthly live storytelling event, Bread & Butter. Join us for a delicious home-cooked meal and storytelling from Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa and her mum, Amarjit – a beautiful way to end your Wednesday!

All proceeds of this special edition of Bread & Butter will go towards funding performers from the South Asian Women’s project, Saga Sisterhood, as they travel to an Asian Arts Festival in Melbourne. Find out more about the project here.


On the menu is home-cooked food prepared by Sukhjit and Amarjit.

PLEASE NOTE: We always provide a vegetarian option, however it may not always be possible to provide meals for other dietary requirements (e.g. vegan, allergies, gluten free). Notification of any dietary requirements (this can be done when purchasing a ticket online) must be made at least 72 hours before the event to ensure enough preparation time for our cooks. 


Due to limited seating, we cannot offer ticket refunds. If you have purchased tickets to an event and can no longer attend, you are welcome to pass along your ticket to somebody else. Please notify us if you wish to do so at: info@centreforstories.com
