Wakefield Council is bringing two new and exciting events to Wakefield City Centre this Summer.

As part of the Festival of the Earth programme, ‘Earth Spectacular’ will be held in Wakefield City Centre on Sunday 5 September, between 12pm and 8pm.

The family friendly, celebration event will consist of a celebration hub located on the Cathedral Precinct, with street food, interactive workshops and live entertainment alongside a high energy and large scale environmental themed parade.

For this event we are looking to recruit caterers selling high quality and delicious street food with a diverse range of cuisines to tickle the public's taste buds.

Wakefield Council will also be hosting Ithaca Fire and Ice, an extraordinary event focussed around Climate Change in Wakefield City Centre.


The immersive sound and light installation will enable visitors to experience the dramatic changes already happening to the Earth’s climate and the impact our actions are now making on the planet.

Running alongside the Installation will be free, one hour science workshops that will engage families in a fun way whilst highlighting environmental issues and the impact of climate change.


We are looking to recruit eco-friendly caterers to supply food and drink to the public on the following days at the Ithaca Fire and Ice Launch Weekend.
