Description

Join Wakefield Civic Society President, Kevin Trickett MBE for this free walking tour around Wakefield city centre exploring sculptures, statues, monuments and decorative architectural embellishments. Kevin will point out details you might never have noticed and help you to discover some of the intriguing craftwork that is visible just by strolling around - and sometimes looking up.

The walk is based on the new Wakefield Civic Society book - Wakefield: City of Sculpture and Public Art, copies of which will be available to purchase on the day at £3.50 per copy. (If you want to purchase a copy before then, pick one up at the Cathedral Bookshop, The Hepworth Wakefield, Yorkshire Sculpture Park or The Art House. Copies can also be ordered by post from the Society for £5 to include p&p - see https://www.wakefieldcivicsociety.org.uk/publications).

The walk will last for around 90 minutes depending on weather conditions. There is no charge but booking is essential.

Organised as part of the Yorkshire Sculpture International Index Festival.
