Head to Nocturno for Funkytown – a Westgate windows boogaloo by artists Tony Wade and Helen Thomas, who have worked with the local community to co-create a wall of individually illuminated windows producing a disco effect!

The artwork was co-created with people from CoActive, Empath Action, Wakefield Studio of Sanctuary, and pupils from Lawefield Lane Primary School.

This artwork is funded by Historic England and supported by Wakefield Council for the Upper Westgate Heritage Action Zone.

Helen and Tony are artists based in Wakefield. Their work shares a common interest in noticing often overlooked details in our everyday surroundings. You can see more of Helen’s work at and Tony’s work at
