Westgate Chapel will be awash with colour on Wednesday when it becomes a destination on Wakefield’s Artwalk.

The monthly event is taking over the Unitarian chapel from 5pm to 10pm on January 27 with “live music, light and projection”.

The free show is being presented by arts group WE ARE, in collaboration with WAKE UP.

The projections will be by students from Backstage Academy. The live music kicks off at 7pm with a 40-minute set from Bobby Mambo. Guitarist Charlie Padfield, who played at Wood Street Christmas Fair when FESTIV_ALT took over empty shops, will perform a set at 8pm. Yard Wars are due on stage at 9pm.

WE ARE is run by Lucy Norton and Amy Lilley from a unit at the Art House on Mulberry Way, across the road from Westgate Chapel. WE ARE is a social enterprise providing a platform for emerging creatives through collaborative projects. To find out more about Wakefield Artwalk visit www.artwalk.org.uk.
