A Message from Lit Fest
It’s that time of year again and Wakefield Lit Fest is back! This year, Wakefield Lit Fest 2016 takes place 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 and the seed fund needs you to make this year’s festival one to remember. The seed fund enables groups and individuals like you to get involved with the festival by producing your own events. The festival will support your event through marketing activity including listings in our festival brochure and website as well as festival promotion through our social media channels. Be as creative as you like – your event could be 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. Need help? We can advise you with planning your event just let us know how we can support you. We have limited funding for applications of up to £200, download the Seed Fund Application Form and Call Out information here. Hurry, the deadline for applications is Monday 13 June at 9.30am.
