Hexed and Twice Hexed

Theatre – 16:30 – 17:30
Ages 12+

Jessie Jones has just discovered she’s a witch, but she still has to deal with the patriarchy…

After a summer of surfing, sunbathing and fine-tuning her new witchy skills, Jessie starts Year 11 feeling hopeful. She feels like her life- ducks are finally in a row – and at school, she has her sisterhood of Summer, Libby and Tabitha supporting her. Callum Henderson and his toxic masculinity minions have eased off enough for it the girls to feel like they can breathe again, so this year should be a breeze, right? Wrong. Mysterious new girl Sloane has just arrived … and did she mention she’s a witch too?

A feisty, funny YA series set on the Isle of Wight, about discovering your place and your power.
After a brief stint working in television and as a primary school teacher, Julia Tuffs decided to take her writing dreams more seriously.

The HEXED series (HEXED and TWICE HEXED) are her first books for teens.

The IW Story Festival. 

It’s a special place for children and families to have fun together; where we can all CREATE, INSPIRE and IMAGINE.
Stories are all around us; not just in books and poems and plays and songs, but also in the news and history and the places we live. Over three days, the IW Story Festival lets you get lost in stories of all kinds…

What stories will you bring with you?
