About

Wakefield Museums & Castles turned 100 in 2023! As part of their centenary celebrations, they picked 100 fascinating objects to represent our 100 years of collecting.


Writers from the Wakefield Word with Black Horse Poets group have kindly written creative responses to some of the 100 treasures.


Join the team for a special evening of readings inspired by the Wakefield Museums & Castles collection. Find out more about their centenary and enjoy the writers’ performances, from moving poems to comic shorts.


This is part of Our Year – Wakefield District 2024.
