The Learning Department at Wakefield Cathedral covers a wide area of work. We often run workshops and visits for schools and uniformed organisations as well as adult community groups. We run free drop in activities for families during holidays and some weekends both in our own buildings and out in the community. We organise exhibitions and Art Walk nights and host a variety of creative events and workshops throughout the year. many of these events support annual commemorations including International Women's Day, Refugee Week, Remembrance day and Holocaust Memorial Day.

We are a creative and lively department who aim to encourage inclusivity and celebrate diversity, offering people of all ages, faiths or beliefs the opportunities to engage with the cathedral and its heritage on their own terms.

Please get in touch with us if you require any further information.
