Town lamp posts in the spotlight

LAMP posts in Bakewell are once more to be adorned with the work of Peak District writers when a Lamp Post Literature event is held again.

Following the success of last year’s event, local writers will seek to inform, entertain and inspire passers-by.

The members of Writers In The Peak are a varied bunch, so there should be a real mixture of work and something of interest for everybody.

Examples of the group’s writing will be displayed on a lamp post near you throughout Bakewell Carnival Week, which this year starts on June 25. They are bright orange so you can’t miss them.

Hopefully the work will be brought together and become available online and in print later in the year.

Writers In The Peak meet every Tuesday evening (7pm) at the Rutland Hotel. Anyone interested in creative writing is more than welcome to come along. There is a £2 charge, but first timers can come for free. Visit for more information
