WDH has awarded the Wakefield Music Collective £500 to help them hold the annual music festival.
The Wakefield Music Collective, a non-profit organisation run by music loving volunteers, organises live music events across the district.
The Clarence Park Festival is a major event for Wakefield and will take place on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July at Clarence Park, Bandstand, Denby Dale Road, Wakefield.
The grant will contribute towards providing first aid at the event, including a paramedic, emergency vehicle, first aiders, and on site equipment for the duration of the festival.
Kate Honeyman, Chair and Event Organiser from the Wakefield Music Collective said: “We raise all the funds ourselves to stage the event so we can offer it for free to the communities of Wakefield. Funds from grant funders such as WDH are important as they ensure the event goes ahead each year. For some of our audience Clarence Park Festival is the one event of the year where they can have a fun day out for free. It is Wakefield's version of Party in the Park. Good music, socialising and relaxing in the pleasant surroundings of Clarence Park, Wakefield.”
Chris Croxall, WDH’s Tenant Involvement Officer said: “WDH are pleased to support Wakefield Music Collective with their annual music festival. Their big event held at the bandstand in Clarence Park in the last weekend of July is the longest running free music event in Yorkshire.”
