Important notice regarding ‘Night of Fire and Light’

Location: Cathedrals Precinct, Kirkgate, Wakefield, WF1 1HG

Client: Wakefield BID in association with Wakefield Cultural Consortium


In light of the unprecedented effects of the coronavirus pandemic and government advice, Wakefield’s Night of Fire & Light will not be going ahead on Thursday 26 & Friday 27 March.

Our first priority is the health and well-being of everyone – our audiences, our company, our staff, and the entire community. This is why we have taken the decision not to go ahead.

We really hope we can reschedule the event. It will take some time to work out the detail of this, find new dates and get everything in place. As soon as we know more we will be in touch with those who registered, and we will also post messages across social networks.

This applies to all Night of Fire & Light events, including the programme inside and outside Wakefield Cathedral, at All Saints Yard and the guided walk. Events advertised at other venues may also be affected – we recommend you visit the website of the venue for further information.

We also wanted to take a moment to thank those who donated to support this event. As we hope to reschedule this event, we ask that you allow us to keep your donation to use at a later date. However, if you would prefer a refund, please contact Theatre Royal Wakefield’s Box Office Manager, Jill McGahan quoting your order reference number and they can arrange that for you.

Night of Fire & Light was to be delivered by several organisations from across Wakefield and beyond. From cultural organisations and local businesses to education providers and specialist companies, we had worked together to create something spectacular for our city. We hope we can share it with you soon.

In the meantime, we ask that you consider how you might be able to continue to support the diverse range of superb businesses and cultural organisations across our city and district in these uncertain, challenging times.

Our thoughts are with everyone who is being affected by this situation and we pass on our very best wishes to all of you and your loved ones.

Stay well, Wakefield Cultural Consortium, Wakefield BID, Walk The Plank and partners.
