Huddersfield law firm backs literature festival

Huddersfield law firm Wilkinson Woodward Norcliffe & Co is throwing its support behind next week’s launch of the 2015 Huddersfield Literature Festival.

Wilkinson Woodward Norcliffe & Co is sponsoring the festival launch which kicks off at 6pm on Thursday 5 March at the University of Huddersfield.

The event features as its special guest the acclaimed author of The Girl With All the Gifts, MR Carey. The Queen Street legal practice, which has further offices in Brighouse and Halifax, is also sponsoring this year’s festival brochure.

Last year Wilkinson Woodward Norcliffe & Co sponsored festival’s headline event which saw former chief news correspondent for the BBC, Kate Adie OBE, recall her experiences as a war reporter to a packed audience.

Since its inception in 2006, Huddersfield Literature Festival has hosted many innovative and high-profile events to showcase new and established writers and performers.

Laura Kurowski, a director at Wilkinson Woodward Norcliffe & Co said: “We’re delighted to be sponsoring Huddersfield Literature Festival again this year. The festival brings some big name authors to Huddersfield and attracts visitors from across the district.

“We’ve been serving local people for over 125 years so the festival allows us to give something back to the community.”

Festival director Michelle Hodgson said: “We are thrilled to be continuing our relationship with Wilkinson Woodward Norcliffe & Co at this year’s festival. Business sponsorship helps us ensure that our events are accessible to a broad range of the population and we very much appreciate the company’s support.”

With a theme of ‘Into the Future’, the festival, which runs from 5-15 March, promises another bumper crop of inspiring and innovative events. For more information visit
