Love the 1980s

The next Artwalk in Wakefield is Wednesday 24 September.  Venues across Wakefield will be opening their doors to showcase a range of artistic and cultural events and activities.  For full details see: Artwalk.

Wakefield Museum is going all 1980s for the evening.  Pop into the museum between 5pm & 7.30pm for fashion, music and Rubik's Cubes.  Shoulder pads, blue eye shadow and crimped hair all welcome.

To celebrate this 1980s extravaganza here are some objects form the collections to take you on a trip down memory lane!!!!


Love the stylish clip-on earrings!

Blue eye shadow compliments crimped hair a treat.

For more 1980s fun, be sure to come to Wakefield Museum on Wednesday 24 September. Eye Wood will be hosting a fantastic 1980s fashion show (6.30pm - 7.15pm).  There will be a chance to take up the Rubik's Cube challenge and make a Pac-Man deely-bopper!

If you have any objects from the 1980s hidden in the loft bring them along and they could end up in a 1980s display early next year!
