Discover – The Great Wakefieldian Songbook

Welcome to #YoungTeam’s Discover: The Great Wakefieldian Songbook!

We’re going to give you the chance to discover and listen to music from our city of Wakefield, learn how to play some of the songs on guitar, and share with us what you’ve done. There’s a range of video sessions and it’s up to you which you choose, but we’re sure you’ll find something you like.

This is a programme you can work through at your own pace – you don’t have to do it all in one go. Just download the workbook and take it at your own pace. All you need is a guitar. 

We believe these activities are suitable for ages 10+. Older people will be able to work through independently, younger people will benefit from a parent / guardian working through with them.

First Steps:

  • Save the Workbook to your computer (it might be tricky to fill it in on a phone). 
  • Work your way through. It has links to all the videos that you will need. 
  • Come back here when the booklet is complete (make sure you’ve saved all your work). 

Submit Your Work:

If you have any problems with accessibility for any of this work, or prefer the songbook or a logbook posting to you; contact our Education Manager Paul on
