The Hepworth Wakefield offers an exciting learning programme for young people, families and adults. We offer a range of ways for everyone to engage with the exhibitions and displays, from workshops and talks to guided tours and seminars.


The gallery and our activities for families can be busy during school holidays and weekends. To help us facilitate an enjoyable experience for all of our visitors we ask that groups of 5 or more children let us know when they plan to visit by contacting  learning@hepworthwakefield.org or calling 01924 247398.
