Freman College in Buntingford played host to a convention of wig-wearing witches as students from Years 9 and 10 performed Roald Dahl's tale The Witches.

The Witches tells the story of a boy - played with remarkable confidence by Emily Dunn - who after being taught the finer points of spotting a witch, comes face-to-face with the most fearsome of all, the Grand High Witch.

Ms Andrews, who directed the play, said: "I was overwhelmed by the commitment and focus demonstrated by the cast and crew. They worked hard and deserved all the praise they received from the audiences.
