Club host 150th Anniversary Service

Wakefield Trinity is delighted to be hosting a Service at Wakefield Cathedral as part of our 150th Anniversary Celebrations.

After over 150 years of both jubilation and commiseration, 2023 celebrated more than a century and a half of the Club, and with our all-new Heritage Project launching at the turn of the year, we are looking to celebrate it even further.

From Don Fox to Danny Kirmond, the Club has had a whole host of legendary figures pull on that famous Red, White and Blue shirt, running out to the bellowing chants from the North Stand faithful.

As a staple figure in the City for over 150 years, the Foundation will be hosting a Cathedral Service on Thursday, 21st September 2023, which will include poems, hymns and readings from across the decades.

All supporters will be free to attend, with the event starting at 6:30pm, while those looking to come along encouraged to arrive from 6pm onwards.

Speaking on the Service, Heritage Project Officer, Jason Talbot, said, “I am really pleased that we have been able to book this in and showcase the heritage of the club at such an incredible location.

“We have quite a bit going on across the night, showcasing what the Club is and what it means to the people of this City. I am really looking forward to seeing those who come along and discussing their memories of the club.”

Alongside the Cathedral Service, the Foundation is also inviting supporters to share past memories of the club, which will be used across our Heritage Project. These recordings will take place in the Ridings Club Shop every Tuesday from 11am to 1pm.
