Tonight at Wakefield Museum

Tonight is Artwalk night!

Wakefield Museum is proud to be part of this city-wide event.  
Come along from 5pm to 8pm.

Have a Historical Encounter!
Wakefield Museum’s temporary exhibition, Food For All Seasons, explores what was on the menu season by season in medieval Wakefield. With some amazing objects on display, including a medieval book of hours and the chance to peek into the larders of 14th century Sandal Castle, this exhibition is sure to whet your appetite…  
Drop in to meet: Thomas Dayville, Castle Steward
Thomas Dayville is a busy man. As Castle Steward he must manage the staff, keep up with the daily routine and of course serve his lord in the best way possible. With making sure the Castle is kept in good repair, and the stores well provisioned it’s never ending...
Part of the You Are What You Ate project, funded by the Wellcome Trust and in partnership with Wakefield Council, the University of Leeds and the University of Bradford.
Free entry 5 – 7.30pm

Knitter, painter, song writer, sewer, crocheter, card maker, poet, doodle drawer, designer, paper folder, or just like making stuff? Get away from those distractions and come do your creative thing! Bring your notepad, your needles, your pencils, your wool. We’ll provide the space to allow your mind to wander and your creative juices flow.
Whatever you make, come and make it with us, together.
Made In Wakefield is a hub for creative activity to showcase, inspire and celebrate all things made in the Wakefield District. Whatever you’ve created, however big or small, loud or quiet, Made In Wakefield is here to celebrate you!
There will also be a DOODLE WINDOW, with all materials provided, and some performances in the ground floor atrium from Wakefield singer songwriter Martin Waterhouse, and Ossett poet Matt Abbott. Tony Wade from Faceless Company will also be on hand to help you make your very own wire figure sculpture throughout the evening. Silk paintings by workshop participants across the district will also be on display.
So there’s plenty to do, see, hear, watch and participate in, even if you don’t have any projects of your own to work on, and even if you do!
