Festive Fun around the Wakefield District

'Tis the season! Celebrate the countdown to Christmas in style with fantastic festive events, workshops and activities taking place across the Wakefield district.

Visit Father Christmas in some unexpected places - from his cosy Victorian home at Wakefield Museum to a unique underground grotto at the National Coal Mining Museum for England. Experience a magical Christmas in a medieval setting at Pontefract Castle, or join in the colourful Christmas light switch-ons in towns around the district.

Fancy getting creative? Craft a wreath for your door, screen-print stunning Christmas cards, or even make your own tree decorations in a number of exciting yuletide workshops.

All this, plus acclaimed Christmas markets, fairs and other quirky shopping opportunities will be sure to put you in a merry mood.
