Light Up Wakefield

Wakefield Light Night



Light Up Wakefield


Light Up Wakefield will return for its fourth year with a series of free events lighting up the district and a chance to celebrate the start of the festive season.

This year’s Wakefield city centre Light Up weekend takes place 17-19 November 2023, inviting you to experience the city in a whole new light. Visitors will have the chance to experience LEAP by imitating the dog, an incredible projection mapping piece combines heartfelt storytelling, stunning animations, and a live singer. With something for everyone, the trail continues throughout the city centre with stunning immersive light installations to explore.

After last year’s success, Pontefract Castle Light Up is returning 24-25 November 2023 with a unique opportunity to experience For Peace. You won’t want to miss this incredible 125 metre long light installation by artists sedemminut.
