“A City Worth Shouting About”

Wakefield is home to some amazing places; venues, restaurants, shops, art galleries, museums, cafes, bars, pubs, secret streets, hidden corners and historic buildings. It’s also home to some wonderfully creative people. When they all come together, Wakefield really is a place worth shouting about.

Wakefield Live is a one day festival to celebrate the city. We want to help bring all those elements together, but for it to be led by those creatives and those amazing organisations and businesses.

We want the festival to be created by the community, for the community. So if you are an artist, a venue or a promoter, let’s make this happen – check out the sign-up links below.
