Description:
The Wakefield Express is the newspaper serving the City of Wakefield district in West Yorkshire, England. It was established in 1852 and was the subject of a centenary film produced by Lindsay Anderson in 1952. The newspaper is owned by Johnston Press and edited by Mark Bradley.

After 155 years of publication as a broadsheet, it changed to a tabloid format in March 2007.

Literacy campaign

The newspaper launched its Read On literacy campaign in 2006, prompted by statistics which showed that over 1700 Wakefield adults cannot read. The campaign was backed by Tony Blair and Bridget Jones author Helen Fielding, and organised a Wakefield Book Day in March 2007 and provided reading material for primary school leavers worth £10,000. The campaign culminated at an event in Wakefield Cathedral.
