February Half Term

Christmas might only feel like five minutes ago, but Feburary half term beckons, and you need to start planning what to do with the kids. Don't panic: there's plenty to do across the Wakefield district!

Go back in time to see what the Iron Age was like in Castleford, or make some medieval style crafts in Pontefract. Want to get outdoors? Take in a playful family sculpture walk at Yorkshire Sculpture Park or get wild at Nostell.

And don't forget Wakefield's Rhubarb Festival returns - this time for a whole week! With storytelling workshops, a rhubarb themed video game and a bicycle powered carousel to entertain the little ones, and a real rhubarb forcing shed to help you learn all about the history of the region's favourite pink vegetable, the Rhubarb Festival is bigger and better than ever!
