Milk and Cookie Stories is for anyone who has a story to tell, or wants to hear a tale told well, in a relaxed, friendly environment - a place with tea, cushions, cookies and friends. Our event is free, everyone is welcome and we welcome stories of all kinds.

This month we're looking for stories about Christmas. That's it. Christmas. So make sure your story is about Christmas. Because that's what we want to hear. Stories about Christmas.

As always, we'll be having our awesome Bake-Off where we'll be taking your finest treats and having them battle for king of the cookie so bring your champion confection! This month why not bake something Christmassy? The winner will receive a lovely prize as well as a round of applause from our eternally comely audience.

So jingle those bells and deck those halls, and come to The Exchange for shelter from the storm - cause baby it's cold outside.

As always, we'll be featuring some of the most popular performers from Dublin's best performance nights, including:

- the storytelling of James Moran
- the poetry of Alex Runchman
- the music of Miriam Needham

and the raw disturbance that is Graham Tugwell.

To see these and many more, drop in at 8 on Wednesday the 8th of June, get yourself a pint (or several) and enjoy the show!

Only 5e a ticket, come early to get a seat!
