Wakefield precinct has been transformed into a seaside resort with sandy beaches.

Children can enjoy building sandcastles, riding donkeys and driving their own motorised boats while the seaside is in the city this weekend.

There will be Punch and Judy puppet shows, face painting and balloon modelling as well as Wakefield’s very own Ferris wheel.

Creative workshops including pirate hat, seashell tiara and fish sock making will run throughout the day.

And there will also be a food, drink and craft market, with street entertainers.

The seaside will open from 10am until 5pm today and 10am until 4pm tomorrow.
