October Half Term

Autumn is finally here and there are plenty of spooky activities and seasonal events for you and your family to dive into over half term. Castleford, Pontefract and Wakefield Museums will be hosting a series of autumn- and Halloween-themed activity days for your little monsters to get involved in. 

Would you dare go on a Ghost Walk around the ancient ruins and grounds of Pontefract Castle? Book onto one of these tours hosted by the Pontefract Heritage Group and learn more about the dark history of the castle as you venture across the grounds and descend into the dungeons below.

These are just a handful of the events taking place across the Wakefield District over October Half Term. Explore our page or download our planner to discover what other spooky goings on will be happening near you!
