A group of parents and children gathered in a library watching a performer at WordFest

This May, local libraries and venues across the Wakefield district are celebrating words. Be they poetry, theatre, debate, song or creative writing. Wakefield Libraries are celebrating the power of our spoken and written language.

We are holding a wide range of free, exciting events and activities. There is something for everyone to enjoy, including:

  • storytelling
  • performances
  • puppetry
  • music
  • crafts
  • workshops
  • author talks
  • and more

View the full programme of events.

WordFest is part of Our Year - Wakefield District 2024, a year long celebration of our district and culture.
