Presented by Scary Little Girls and C Fylm
The Mayven Launch Event
The festival kicks off with an evening of film, cabaret, comedy, music and storytelling exploring depictions of witches and celebrating Veronica Lake's iconic performance in this quirky 1942 screwball comedy.
Hosted by Scary Little Girls Artistic Director Rebecca Mordan, this evening begins with live performances by the Mayven festival's very own Radical Rep and culminates in a showing of I Married a Witch!
This event is part of the Winter Mayven Festival

What is the Mayven?
“Even though the festival features women, it certainly isn’t exclusive to them “ explains Rebecca Mordan, artistic director of Scary Little Girls. “We want everyone to get involved as the artists in our Radical Rep use wit and wisdom to pay special honour to the Mayven and Cornish creativity”
“A Mayven is, when independent of guardians and fee of dependants, a woman is at her most magnetic, sexy and powerful. How long does it last? Until the woman herself is ready to enter old age. We believe it’s time to celebrate it!”
