Countdown to Christmas

The festive season is almost upon us. Celebrate the countdown to Christmas in style with exciting events, workshops and activities taking place across the district.

Visit Father Christmas in his Victorian home at Wakefield Museum, say hello to Liquorice Santa at Pontefract Museum and explore Santa's magical grotto 140m underground at the National Coal Mining Museum for England.

Fancy getting creative? Make a festive wreath for your door, create a stunning holly centerpiece and even craft your own Hepworth-inspired tree decorations!

All this combined with Christmas markets and craft fairs will be sure to get you in the festive mood!
