Wakefield Rising: Andrew Whittaker

Andrew Whittaker takes a look back at the soundtrack to 20 years of writing about music - from interviewing Viking warriors to investigating the Death of a Disco Vendor for Wakefield's Rhubarb Bomb magazine.

Hosted by Simon Widdop, Wakefield Rising is a day dedicated to the city’s creatives to showcase the work of local emerging writers and performers – part of Wakefield Lit Fest’s seed fund initiative that supports local talent. Wakefield Rising is a platform to share a wide range of work and includes site-specific theatre, performance, live music, workshops and spoken word.

Please note: This event takes place at Cluntergate Centre, Horbury.
