Story Circles

The Saskatoon Storytellers' Guild meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 7:30 pm in the historic Senator Hotel, in the basement of Winston's Pub and Grill, at 243 21st Street East in Saskatoon. This venue has many cozy meeting rooms in the style of the old British pubs, and you can access our room by entering Winstons' Pub and going through the door that has the "Underground" sign. This is also known as Churchill's Underground Pub/Tavern. Beverages (including coffee and tea) are available, and there is no admission fee for the evening. An elevator is available in the Senator Hotel.

We welcome visitors with open arms, warm hearts and cheerful voices.

NOTE: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will not be holding these public events until further notice. If you wish to get updates on online meetings, please send us an email.
