About

This summer Gaia will take centre stage in the cathedral as the Festival of the Earth comes to Wakefield.

Measuring seven metres in diameter, the spectacle of Gaia is a magnificent sight to behold and will provide an amazing visual experience for visitors to the cathedral across the a ten day period this August (20-30 August 2021).

Hanging in the nave above the Labyrinth, visitors will get the opportunity to see the earth on the grandest of scales, providing the perfect centre piece to the variety of activities going on across the district this summer with an environmental theme.

Whether you are wanting to visit to see the beauty of Gaia or would like to get involved with one of our activities and events being hosted across the ten day period when Gaia is here, check out our array of engagement opportunities by clicking here.
