FROM the opening of the Hepworth Wakefield and Trinity Walk, to the Wildcats keeping their Super League status, there is a lot for the city to celebrate.

That is the message from Wildcats chief executive James Elston as he invites the whole city to get involved with the club’s end of season party.

For the first time in the club’s history businesses, schools and community groups will be able to celebrate their achievements alongside the rugby league players at Belle Vue.

Mr Elston said: “It is the first time anything like this has been done.

“We want it to be a celebration of everything Wakefield is good for.

“It could be a business which has something to shout about or someone who has had a bad year with health and is now recovering.

“We want community groups and amateur sports clubs to get involved as well as celebrating the recent renaissance of Wakefield with the Hepworth, Trinity Walk and of course the Wildcats keeping their Super League status.

“It is a time when Wakefield has got a lot to be proud of and we should all celebrate that.”

The black tie event, called Celebrate Wakefield, will include a champagne reception, four-course meal, awards and performance from Take That tribute band Back For Good, which won Wakefield’s Got Talent.

It will be held on Tuesday, September 13, and will take place in a purpose-built marquee on the turf at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium on Doncaster Road.

Tickets, starting from £40, are already selling quickly and are available through the rugby league club.
