Knottingley hosts a free five day cultural festival
A new free cultural festival that will highlight Knottingley’s past, present and future is being held in the town this summer.
The Glass Works is a five day celebration from 28 May to 1 June, based at Kellingley Social Club which offers a range of activities such as poetry workshops, storytelling, art, music and fitness.
The event has been organised by Wakefield Council and is being held in partnership with Edgelands Arts.
Cllr Jacquie Speight, Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Sport at Wakefield Council, said: "This is a great way to celebrate Knottingley and I hope lots of people will come along to this exciting new event, get involved in the activities, have fun and try new things."
The week will include opportunities for people to get involved in creating art work that will, in time, go on display in Knottingley.
There's also a chance to take part in music and poetry workshops and performances and try out activities such as yoga, Pilates and Nordic walks.
