In March 1964, a public meeting was called by a group of local residents to discuss the establishment of a civic society in Wakefield. That meeting was held at Wakefield Town Hall and attracted around 100 people who were concerned about what was happening to Wakefield’s built heritage. As a result of the meeting, Wakefield Civic Society came into existence and the rest, as they say, is history.

Join them as Wakefield Civic Society President Kevin Trickett MBE looks back through the Society’s archives to tell the story behind the Society and what they have been doing over 6 decades.

The talk is free and open to all – you don’t have to be a member to attend.

Wakefield Civic Society also hope to offer a live-stream of the talk. If you cannot attend the talk in person and would like to watch on-line, please make sure you select a ‘live-stream’ ticket when booking. On the day of the talk, a Zoom link to watch the event will be emailed out to everyone booking a live-stream ticket.

Delivered as part of the Society’s contribution to Our Year 2024 – Wakefield District.
