Light Up Wakefield


Light Up Wakefield invites residents and visitors alike to explore the district in a whole new light. From a spectacular 3-day event in Wakefield city centre to art installations in castles, villages and towns, the festival is an invitation to celebrate heritage and welcome in the festive season through the medium of light.

Started in 2020 in the midst of lockdown, the festival now in its 3rd year welcomes partner events from cultural institutions including The Hepworth Wakefield and the National Coal Mining Museum for England.

Head over to Wakefield city centre from 18-20 November 2022 and follow a trail of light installations like no other. From Lucid Creates’ installation Futures, to Spin Me A Yarn by Studio Vertigo and our very own Dennis the illuminated fire truck, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
