Sat 9 Dec Liquorice Santa


This December, head over to Pontefract Museum and get the chance to meet a special Sweet Santa!

Take some time out from your Christmas shopping and pop into the museum to visit Santa in his unique liquorice grotto.

While you're waiting to meet Santa, have a go at creating something festive to take home, follow a special trail around the museum and see what you can spot in the fascinating displays or dig around in the dressing up box and dress up as a character from the past.

All children who visit Liquorice Santa will receive a special Christmas gift.

This FREE event is a drop in session so there is no need to book ahead. It's no fun queuing, a time slot will be given to you on arrival then you can spend more time having fun around the museum.
