Produced by Paul Cooke

Castleford Lit Fest in a Day was part of Wakefield Lit Fest's touring programme the co-curates a one day festival in different parts of Wakefield District with a local group.   Organised by Beam and funded by Arts Council England Strategic Touring, Castleford Lit Fest in a Day took place on Saturday 20th May at Queen’s Mill in partnership with Castleford Heritage Trust.

It was a celebration of Castleford – the people and the town, held in the historic Queen’s Mill – where flour has been milled on the site for hundreds of years - the theme of the festival was therefore Castleford Born & Bread.
