This event has now finished
The IW Story Festival is a three day event for children and young people celebrating everything to do with story, in its many forms.
Meet some authors, listen to some tales, watch a performance, create a poem or do a craft activity - there is something for everyone aged 4-18 at this year's festival.
Thursday is aimed at age 12+ with edgy drama, an insight into the comic writing process, thought provoking author talks, wordsmithing with the very cool, Adam Gaterell, creating creatures with Anthony James of TV and film fame,
and song writing with JC Grimshaw. Friday and Saturday are packed with nationally known authors such as Simon Farnaby, Kieran Larwood and Cerrie Burnell, all sharing their stories. In between times, you can get creative with drop-in and bookable craft workshops or you could just soak up the atmosphere in the cafe, pick up a book from Medina Bookstore and listen to some local bands playing.
