Light Up

Light Up the district this Christmas!

This winter, Wakefield Council and partners will be lighting up buildings across the district as part of #LightUp - a new celebration of light-inspired activities and initiatives, to accompany the normal Christmas Lights.

Even though the usual switch on events won't take place this year, the Christmas lights will still shine bright across the district.

As part of the Light Up programme, a number of the district's buildings to will be lit up over different evenings.

These Light Ups should be enjoyed online, allowing everyone to take part, but can also be viewed by residents attending their normal essential shopping or physical activity, and those still attending school and work during this period.

Local residents are also being invited to Light Up their own homes, businesses and communities and share these pictures online throughout November, December and January, using #LightUp.
