Wednesday 26 January 2020
The first Artwalk of 2020 (and last, although we didn't know it) was on Wednesday 26th January, and saw us celebrate art and culture across all disciplines.
12 venues across Wakefield city centre opened their doors to the public, hosting a fantastic range of free events with over 16 different exhibitions and performances for visitors to enjoy. From graduate residency exhibitions to mash potato sculpture making, shopping centre performances to virtual reality exploring, there was something for everyone.
