Wakefield Town Hall

Join Wakefield Civic Society President, Kevin Trickett MBE for this free walking looking at art and sculpture visible in and around the city.

Kevin will point out details you might never have noticed and help you to discover some of the intriguing artwork that is visible just by strolling around Wakefield's streets - and sometimes looking up.

The walk, which is being offered free of charge as part of this year's Heritage Open Days programme is based on the Society's book "Wakefield: City of Sculpture and Public Art" and all participants will receive a free copy of the book (pictured above) which usually sells for £3.50.

Walks will generally be over level ground but there are some steps and some of the street surfaces are uneven. Sensible footwear is advised.

We will be following government advice on Covid safety and are limiting the number of walkers to just 20 per walk. BOOKING IS THEREFORE ESSENTIAL! Please do not turn up without having booked your place.

We reserve the right to cancel any walk because of bad weather.

Meet outside the Town Hall on Wood Street.
