Sat 17 - Sun 18 Aug Seaside in the City


We all love to be beside the seaside, so get your flip flops ready and grab your buckets and spades for a weekend of free family fun!

The beach is returning to Wakefield on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 August.

Seaside in the City offer a chance for children to have all the fun of the seaside close to home. You can find a large sand pit mimicking a beach, children’s rides, free donkey rides, Punch and Judy shows, street entertainment, children’s workshops, and a small street food market with mobile catering units selling hot and cold food.

Belly of the Whale, an exciting street performance where Circus meets sculpture in this exciting new show from Ockham’s Razor. The performers, like surfers in a wild sea, ride a giant semi-circular see-saw made of wood and steel which creaks and groans as it transforms from a catapult, a gently rocking cradle, a tunnel, a slide – creating an ever-changing land and soundscape.
