To coincide with Wakefield’s annual Festival of Food, Drink and Rhubarb (23rd to 25th February), Wakefield Civic Society are offering two tours; one of Wood Street and one of the city’s Town and County Halls.

Led by Society President Kevin Trickett, both tours begin in the Society’s office on the ground floor of Wakefield Town Hall in Wood Street with a short illustrated talk before commencing the tours.

Anyone coming on the morning Wood Street tour will receive a free copy of the Society’s book Wood Street: The Heart of Wakefield, written by Kevin and published in 2017.

The afternoon tour will include the principal public rooms of each building. Depending on weather conditions, there may be time to explore some of the area outside.

Please meet at the Town Hall in good time so that each talk and tour can start promptly at the advertised time – 10.30 am and 2.00 pm. The morning talk and tour will last around 90 minutes. The afternoon talk will take around two hours.
