The seaside is coming to the city centre again this summer with beaches, donkey rides and deck chairs.

Wakefield Council is holding the free family event in the Cathedral Precinct on Saturday, August 16 from 10am –5pm and Sunday, August 17 from 10am-4pm.

The weekend’s entertainment includes Punch and Judy shows, live music, sand art and windmill making workshops. Change4Life are also bringing along their interactive Disney roadshow on the Saturday.

Coun Les Shaw, cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport, said: “We may be far from the coast but we can still bring the excitement of the seaside to the city.”
