Come to Pontefract Museum for a family activity session guaranteed to delight all those with a sweet tooth!

Pontefract has been associated with sweets for over a hundred years, so what could be better than a craft activity built around this yummy heritage?

First, sample some of the delicious sweets that Pontefract and the local area are famous for. Then once the sweets have been eaten, it's time to channel your creative side to create a character inspired by the sweets!

This drop-in activity session is free and there is no need to book.
