A general formalism is developed that allows the construction of a field theory on quantum spaces which are deformations of ordinary spacetime. The symmetry group of spacetime (the Poincaré group) is replaced by a quantum group. This formalism is demonstrated for the $\kappa$-deformed Poincaré algebra and its quantum space. The algebraic setting is mapped to the algebra of functions of commuting variables with a suitable *-product. Fields are elements of this function algebra. The Dirac and Klein-Gordon equation are defined and an action is found from which they can be derived.
