Wakefield Lit Fest 2016 Dates Announced!

Wakefield Lit Fest is back for 2016!

We are delighted to announce that Wakefield Lit Fest 2016 is back for another year and takes place from 23 September - 2 October at places and spaces across the district and city centre. 2016 is a special year for Wakefield Lit Fest as we celebrate our 5th birthday - programmed by arts charity Beam and supported by Arts Council England, Wakefield Lit Fest has become a real highlight in the city's cultural calendar. The team at Beam  are very excited about the city's biggest and brightest literary festival and hope you are too!

Seed Funding for Community Events Now Open
The seed fund is a community initiative that enables groups and individuals to get involved with the festival by producing their own events. We are now taking proposals for this year's festival so if you have an idea why not apply?

Be as creative as you like - a spoken word performance, poetry reading, book launch or anything that celebrates reading, writing and words - you don't need to have previous experience just enthusiasm to devise and deliver a great event. We have limited funding for applications of up to £200 and we're hoping to support 10 events, download the Seed Fund Application Form and Call Out information here.

A New Look for 2016
This year, to mark our 5th anniversary Wakefield Lit Fest has had a bit of a makeover and we'll be revealing our new festival brand very soon! We're really proud of Wakefield Lit Fest and how the festival has developed over recent years and look forward to the continued support from all our festival partners, supporters, participants and audiences for 2016.

Watch this Space
We'll be announcing the full programme over the coming months so hang on to your hats - and make sure you keep an eye out on social media for the latest news and updates.
