The launch of David ‘The Bloke from Hull’ Litten’s first book is set to take place on Thursday 26th November.
From Junk to Junction: The Renaissance of The Junction, Castleford (forward by Roger Protz), charts the rise of this award winning public house from near extinction.
If you’ve never been to the Carlton Street boozer this is a unique opportunity to experience the only pub in the UK where all the real ales are dispensed from wooden casks. It’s worth having a look at The Junction web site which details the ethos, dedication and care shown by proprietors Maureen Shaw and Neil Midgley.
The evening promises to be a proper “Cas’ Vegas” event, Cas’ Caviar will be served, Elland Brewery have brewed Codex, a special ‘one off’ beer, and there will be renditions of the pub’s anthems led by Rich Jones accompanied on the piano by Colin Williams. I’ve been told that previous events like this have been very well attended so if you are going along I recommend turning up early.
If anyone is stuck for Christmas gifts there will be Elland Brewery clocks, clothing and charity Junction badges (for those who missed out on them earlier in the year) on sale.
The book is due to be lauched at The Junction, Carlton Street, Castleford at 8pm Thursday, November 26.
Copies of the book are available at The Junction for £7.50 or £10 by post from firstname.lastname@example.org all profits to Alzheimer’s society.
