Get Into Wakefield!

29th November 2014

This Saturday 6th December we will be supporting Small Business Saturday.

Follow us on Facebook & Twitter to find out what's happening at local places this week.

Small independent businesses are very proud to be part of the Wakefield community. We hope you will visit and support your local businesses on Saturday 6th and beyond and help keep our High Street healthy!

All of the places we feature in the Unique Wakefield Guide and on our website are independently owned and run with love and care. They all share a passion for providing a friendly and personal service.

To help people discover local places Unique Wakefield have created:

  • A handy guide to original places located in the City Centre & beyond including a street map showing where they are located, opening times and details about social media pages where people can keep in touch with the latest news on offers, events and activities
  • Unique will be blogging about good things happening around Wakefield and will feature guest blogs too
  • A mobile-phone friendly website
  • Unique Wakefield Facebook and Twitter pages

Unique. Interesting. Characterful.

Whether you are looking for everyday items, treats or need expert advice on finding something for a special occasion, shop locally to discover a variety of stores selling independent brands, bespoke personalised & handmade crafts, homeware, vintage, art supplies, sewing & knitting supplies, unique gifts and boutique fashion & jewellery.

Fresh. Local. Quality.

We all love to know where to buy freshly prepared quality food and local, seasonal ingredients. We feature independently owned foodie stops, cosy cafés and restaurants. They're often family-run and typically offer a friendly, intimate atmosphere along with fresh culinary delights and seasonal menus.

Smart. Stylish. Relaxing.

Wakefield has a reputation for it’s wide choice of smart, stylish salons and treatment rooms which offer a range of relaxing, pampering or therapeutic treatments. Many places also give expert professional advice on changing your look, offering unique experiences and packages.


Many places also run arts, cultural or other events for local people to come together and enjoy.

This year has seen places host Clandestine Cake Club meetings, poetry readings, the Artwalk, knit & natter sessions, wine tasting evenings, pudding clubs, live music, food & drink festivals and more!

So why not 'Get Into Wakefield' & 'Step Inside' independent places on 6th December.
