Wakefield District Libraries

This May, local libraries and other venues across the Wakefield district are celebrating words by holding a wide range of free, exciting events and activities for WordFest. From author talks and storytelling to music and film showings, there is something for everyone!

WordFest is led by Wakefield Libraries and combines the power of our spoken and written language through poetry, theatre, debate, song and creative writing with the 2022 festival theme of celebrating our science and industry. Join in with the conversation on social media by using the hashtags #WordFest and #MakeWordsCount.
