Come along to this newly curated event and hear exciting tales of murder, mystery and all manner of interesting tales of Wakefield and its people, specially selected for this time of year.

As a Dream Time Creative production expertise, passion and love of a good costume is brought to the streets of Wakefield for your delight and delectation.

The fabulous volunteers have selected their highlights and best bits from the 2023 walking tours to bring you an extended event to kick off the new year. The first event of 2024, Footsteps Through Time covers the team’s favourite historical and gruesome tales to date and include stories about death rituals, brutal murders and animal escapes. Incorporating iconic Georgian buildings, blue plaques, darkened streets and dangerous corners this walk will thrill you with its content and keep you talking about what you’ve learnt long afterwards.

An entirely volunteer led Dream Time Creative Production, these walks are delivered by women passionate about his and herstory, who have infectious enthusiasm for storytelling, an interest in the dark and mysterious, a dramatic flair when delivering and look great in historical costumes!

Your tour will start promptly and you are kindly asked to arrive 5 to 10 minutes before the start time. Find them on Westgate outside Pemberton House, opposite the Elephant and Castle public house, or using what3words sang.sings.fields

This is an outdoor event and will take place whatever the weather. Wear appropriate clothing and footwear suitable for city walking. January evenings are cold and dark – the best conditions for sharing these wonderfully gothic tales.
