On Tuesday and Wednesday evening, 10th and 11th December, we are hosting additional events in the office alongside the exhibition:
On Tuesday 10th December, we have a members and invited guests only event - the exhibition will still be open to all.
On Wednesday, 11th December, from 6.30 to 7.15 pm, Ali Bullivent will be joining us for a very special performance. Ali will be singing 'Songs for Wakefield'. This original and diverse set of songs will be accompanied by guitar, and flute. They have been inspired by a range of Wakefield people and places and Sandal Castle, ‘The Church on a Bridge’ and Barbara Hepworth. Because of space limitations, we do need to know who will be coming, so please book in advance by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org giving your name and the name(s) of anyone you would like to bring along with you.
