Fiona Harbour and Darren ‘Daz’ Trei took over the helm at The Polka Hop earlier this year and are committed to supporting the local LGBTQ+ community as well as providing a fantastic space for everyone in Wakefield to enjoy.

They host monthly Open Mic Mondays fronted by The Bleeding Obvious and regular music nights featuring rock, folk, blues and lots more besides.

Daz said: “We can’t wait to welcome darts players to The Polka Hop in October, especially since the money raised is for a brilliant local cause. All abilities are honestly welcome and, if you want to get some practice in first, drop in for a drink.”

Our House Centre Co-ordinator, Lucy Brown, said: “The Polka Hop’s quickly become one of the friendliest pubs in Wakefield since Fiona and Daz took over.
