The Storyteller

Banish the winter blues and join the Friends for lunch at The Storyteller on Wednesday 1st February. The Storyteller prides itself on being one of Cheltenham’s most exciting and unusual restaurants and they have created a special menu for us to enjoy.

After lunch, you are invited to join us for a private guided tour of Cheltenham’s Masonic Hall at 2 Portland Street. The Masonic Hall is a grade II listed building, believed to be the second oldest purpose-built Masonic Lodge in England. It dates from the early 1820s and is the oldest public building in Cheltenham (other than churches) which is still being used for the purpose for which it was designed. The magnificent interior is normally only open to visitors during Heritage Open Days.
