Festive Garden Play

Sat 4 & Sun 5 Dec, 10.30-11.15am, 11.30am-12.15pm, 1.15-2pm, 2.15-3pm

Suitable for families with children aged 0-11


Book in advance

Come and play in our cosy family yurt as part of your visit to the Festive Mini Market at The Hepworth Wakefield. Join artist Steph Jefferies for playful seasonal activities to imagine, experiment, draw and create with your family.

There are only very limited spaces left for Festive Garden Play so book now to avoid disappointment.

Families unable to book a ticket can pick up a winter garden i-spy and drawing activity from outside the yurt to explore the seasonal planting and spaces in The Hepworth Wakefield Garden. Explore & Draw kits are also available from the welcome desk.

If you are also planning to visit the Festive Mini Market please remember to pre-book for that too.

Please note

Children must be accompanied at all times; a maximum of three children per accompanying adult.

Please come to the Sunken Garden at your booked time. A member of the learning team will sign you in and welcome you to the session.

Please dress in warm clothing. The majority of activity will be inside the yurt, but the weather can be chilly at this time of year.

Adults and children over 11 years are required to wear face coverings while indoors, unless they are exempt for medical reasons. Staff and volunteers will be wearing face coverings.

Toilet, hand washing and baby changing facilities are available inside the gallery building.

If you cannot attend a session please cancel your booking so that other families can enjoy the session, even if it is a few hours before. We will hold places for 10 minutes after the start time but will then invite any waiting families to join after that time.


Family workshops during Covid-19

The Hepworth Wakefield has reopened with carefully planned safety measures in place. We are now pleased to be able to continue our programme of family workshops in a safe environment.

Please note adults and children over 11 years are advised to wear face coverings inside the yurt for Festive Garden Play. The doors to the yurt will be open throughout the session to allow air to circulate.

Before your visit, please familiarise yourself with the family workshop safety information here.
