Start your Christmas shopping and support independent makers when The Hepworth Wakefield’s popular Festive Market returns this winter over two weekends. You will find around 60 stalls selling candles, ceramics, gifts for children, homeware, prints, textiles and stationery.
The Hepworth Wakefield Festive Market will be the first major event to take place in the newly-created event space at Tileyard North, the refurbished textile mill opposite the gallery.
Visitors with children can make a winter decoration inspired by Barbara Hepworth’s sculptures, suitable for families with children aged two to 12.
The Hepworth Wakefield’s building will come alive during the Festive Market weekends with animations flowing across its surfaces, telling stories about Barbara Hepworth, Yorkshire landscapes and the gallery’s riverside setting. Designed by Illuminos, it is funded as part of Light Up, led by Wakefield Council from November 16-27, with illuminated trails and events across the Wakefield district.
