Free event Family friendly


Kick off a summer like no other by heading over to A Grand Day Out, Wakefield, in the city centre on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 for a full weekend of free activities brought to you by Wakefield Council.

On both days, visitors can indulge in a tasty selection of street food and take part in some fantastic FREE family craft workshops. There will also be face painting and fun fair rides for little ones to enjoy.
