Welcome to Wake and Make, as Wakefield Museum gets taken over!

Join the Wakefield Youth Creative Takeover Team for a day of talks, tours and crafts.

It’s all being delivered by young people, for young people!

Enjoy spotlight talks on topics ranging from rhubarb to LGBTQ+ history. Go on a creative writing tour around the museum and create a character based on the museum objects. Be inspired by the museum’s decoupage screens and make your mark on the Wakefield Wall of Wonder.

The first hour (10am to 11am) will be a relaxed session. There will be changes to the sensory environment in the museum to create a relaxed atmosphere.
