HAG @ Kendal Mountain Festival

November 29 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

https://player.kendalmountainfestival.com/programs/hag-forgotten-folk-tales-retold

Sit back, have a brew and join us for this special event where we will listen to forgotten folk tales spellbindingly reimagined by some of the best contemporary female writers around.

Natasha Carthew, Mahsuda Snaith, Irenosen Okojie and Imogen Hermes Gowar join Polly Atkin to discuss their engaging modern fables with a feminist bite.

Dark, potent and uncanny, ‘Hag’ bursts with the untold stories of our isles, captured in voices as varied as they are vivid.

Here are sisters fighting for the love of the same woman, a pregnant archaeologist unearthing impossible bones and lost children following you home. A panther runs through the forests of England and pixies prey upon violent men.

From the islands of Scotland to the coast of Cornwall, the mountains of Galway to the depths of the Fens, these forgotten folktales howl, cackle and sing their way into the 21st century!

Not to be missed!
