The Hatchling Opportunities

At the heart of Our Year will be The Hatchling, a spectacular outdoor show featuring a ground-breaking dragon puppet created and produced by Trigger ­– creators of unforgettable, large-scale outdoor theatre and art.

As part of Our Year – Wakefield District 2024, The Hatchling will offer people across the Wakefield district the opportunity to get involved with culture and creativity.

Please note: We will be giving preference to applicants based in the Wakefield district, however we will also consider applications from the wider West Yorkshire area.
