The Grand Central Great Get Together at Wakefield’s Kirkgate Station tomorrow (June 22) has now been cancelled.

After much deliberation, Grand Central Rail decided to pull the event, which would have been part of the Great Get Together weekend, inspired by MP Jo Cox, who was killed in 2016.

Chief Operating Officer, Sean English, said: “Unfortunately, due to a technical issue with the premises, we felt we could no longer hold the event easily.

“We are very much looking forward to being involved next year and continue to support the organisation in its other endeavours year-round.”

The Great Get Together was the brainchild of Jo’s sister Kim Leadbeater, ambassador of the Jo Cox Foundation, who set up the event as a way to bring communities together and celebrate all that unites us.
