Wakefield-based design, digital and marketing agency and Chamber member Statement, are delighted to have been appointed by Beam as the Web & Marketing Partner for Wakefield Lit Fest.
The Wakefield Lit Fest was established in 2012 and is an annual ten day festival celebrating and promoting reading, writing and words. This year the festival will run from the 21st to the 30th of September with a series of events including workshops, reader's events and master classes. Highlights include readings from nationally acclaimed writers such as comedy writer David Nobbs, historian and broadcaster Michael Wood, English music journalist Paul Morley and author of the bestselling novel ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ Tracy Chevalier.
Wakefield’s very own annual festival of reading and writing is brought to you by arts charity Beam, who want to support and encourage individuals and organisations from across the city and district to get involved with the festival. Last year’s event was a great success with over 1000 people of all ages participating in the events, workshops and exhibitions.
To be selected as the Web & Marketing Partner for the Wakefield Lit Fest is a great achievement for Statement, who take great pride in regularly contributing to the Wakefield region through support of regional events, local charities and education institutions.

Dan Conboy, Client Services Director, summarises Statement’s reaction to being selected, "We’re delighted to have been selected as the Web & Marketing Partner for the Wakefield Lit Fest. We are passionate as an agency about getting involved in local events and giving back to the Wakefield community. We are currently working with Beam to develop engaging marketing collateral to promote the festival, including a mobile friendly website which we have just finished developing."
