Wakefield Music Collective


25TH & 26TH JULY 2020


After much agonising over the last two months unfortunately Wakefield Music Collective need to cancel this year’s Clarence Park Festival which was due to be held on the weekend of 25th & 26th July 2020. 

It was going to be held in Clarence Park, Wakefield, however after much discussion with various partners, emergency services and the authorities, due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, Wakefield Music Collective are not able to run a large outdoor event in the present circumstances.

We have been planning and organising Clarence Park 2020 Vision Festival since October 2019 and we are ‘absolutely gutted’ to have to announce the cancellation of the event this year. It is the sensible and responsible thing to do within the authorities and governments guidelines concerning social distancing and staying safe and well. It is a sad time for all of us but we will forge ahead with plans for next year to make Clarence 2021 a belter! Please put the date into your diary now!!! – 24 and 25 July 2021.  

We would like to say thank you to our sponsors, vendors, grant funders, utility providers, bands and performers who have kept faith with us so far. 

We will be back next year with a brilliant festival for you all to be part of and enjoy.

 Keep Safe, Stay well 

 Kind Regards

This funding will contribute to over half of the costs of Clarence Park Festival Celebration 2020. To say it is much appreciated is an understatement.
