Sun 7 Jul Pontefract Liquorice Festival


Liquorice lovers rejoice we have the perfect festival for you!

Pontefract Liquorice Festival, held each July, celebrates the town’s historic link with the flavoursome plant.

Sweet lovers can enjoy a tempting array of liquorice food and drink while browsing the food, craft and gift stalls at the colourful street market. Dancers, musicians and street entertainers delight the crowds throughout the day, while craft activities, face painters and fairground rides keep the little visitors amused.

Discover fascinating facts about liquorice growing in the area and learn why there is so much to celebrate at a liquorice talk or really soak up the festival atmosphere at one of the local pubs or cafes. Liquorice stout is a firm festival favourite!
