Festive Fun around the District

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

Visit Father Christmas in some unexpected places, from his Victorian home at Wakefield Museum to a magical underground grotto at the National Coal Mining Museum for England. Experience a Medieval Christmas at Pontefract Castle or join in the colourful Christmas Lights celebrations around the district.

Fancy getting creative? Make a festive wreath for your door, create a stunning holly centrepiece and even craft your own tree decorations in a number of exciting festive workshops!

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