The Official Friday Night's Dream Website



Wyckerton is a lively, walled city. Tourists and locals visit every day of the year. They are always welcome and are never asked to leave ... but they do leave, one by one, until only the city's residents remain. And that is when it starts to get exciting ...

The participants at a recent story-writing workshop at Winchester's Discovery Centre worked really hard. An example is the brief plot line above. Well done Nora, I hope that you finish the story - sorry that we ran out of time!

My thanks to Nora, Arthur, Bridget and Layla and the other children who came and worked so hard. Your stories and pictures were excellent.

A story for the younger reader

I have a feeling that I'm going to need a story for younger siblings on Saturday. I'm writing it now -'Little Witches of Wyckerton' - and will publish the full story here after the event. 

See what you think...

'Little Witches of Wyckerton'

Pippa and Fizz are little witches. No, really, they are. They live in Wyckerton, a city that’s ordinary during the day but magical by night. No one knows except the people that live there and they have to keep it a secret.

Imagine the fun an ordinary young witch could have living there and then imagine what an inquisitive one would get up to. If you can’t quite picture it you’d better keep reading, that way you’ll find out.

(more soon)
