Summer fun days at Wakefield Cathedral

During August, the city of Wakefield has been transformed into Wakefield-by-the-sea with sand, donkey rides, buckets and spades, and Wakefield Cathedral is playing its part by offering a free craft drop-in for families.


It is all part of the Cathedral’s summer family fun programme launched last week when families were invited on a treasure hunt to find different plants hidden in the Grade 1 listed building’s famous collection of Victorian stained glass windows as part of a day of free plant themed crafts. 


Funded by Allchurches Trust, Hymns Ancient and Modern, and the Sir George Martin Trust, there are five family fun sessions that run throughout August.  Tis Saturday's drop ins are from 11am- 3pm and families can make their own suncatchers,  lighthouses, origami boats, and there will be another discovery trail through the cathedral.

The Community Outreach officer, Gillian Bunn said: “Once you start looking round, it is amazing what you can find here in our cathedral; you can always discover something new.


“We had a lovely time finding different plants and flowers hidden in our windows and have more exciting crafts planned for the rest of our summer family fun programme,’ she added.
