Free Entry


We are delighted to welcome an exhibition of drawing and painting based works by the talented Helen Thomas to Wakefield Cathedral this summer.

An exhibition of paintings that celebrate self-seeded, often overlooked plants that bring colour and softness to our streets, support wildlife and contribute to bio-diversity.

The exhibition features site responsive artworks inspired by urban plants in the Wakefield district.

There is also a digital gallery of pictures of pavement plants sent in by the public. The final deadline to enter your picture for 'Dandelions and Double Yellows - Your Gallery’ is Friday 23 July.

There will be an ‘In Conversation’ event on Thursday 05 August (details to be announced).


You can visit the exhibition at these times:

Monday - Saturday: 9:00 - 16:00

Sunday: 13:00 - 15:15

The exhibition will be open until 21:00 on Wednesday 28 July for Wakefield Artwalk.
