Sat 27 - Sun 28 Jul Clarence Park Festival Celebration!


Wakefield Music Collective present the 28th Clarence Park Festival. This year it’s called Clarence Park Festival Celebration! As the Festival is the culmination of a weeklong celebration for the Friends of ChaT (Clarence, Holmfield and Thornes) Parks group who are holding various events in the park from 20th July.

This is Yorkshire's longest running free music Festival, attracting an audience of around 5000 over the weekend. We have a reasonably priced bar with a selection of real ale, lagers, ciders and wines. We have food vendors selling, burgers, ice creams and Caribbean fayre. There is a face painter, clothing stalls, blanket stall, craft stalls and some children’s rides.

It’s a real family day out, all ages attend the Festival from babies to great grandparents!

We carefully select the bands to give a mix of musical genres across the weekend. You will hear rock, pop, indie, folk and funk, plus many more styles from local and national bands. Bands start at 12 noon and finish at 9pm.

Headlining the stage Saturday night are local legends The Sourheads and Sunday night is fabulous Wakefield band Trancend.

Others playing are: Seventh Son, Dayana, Max Lilleyman, Sally Cinnamon, Quiet Eyes, Irontooth, Spiteful Embrace, Elastic Waste, Harry Middleton, Kath and the Kicks, Late Night Legacy, One Million Motors, Six or Five, Stereohaze, David Tattersall, What's Eating Elkie Barton.

Programmes and t-shirts are available at the information tent!
