Medieval Sports Week

Medieval Sports Week


Are you looking for a special way to celebrate the end of the school year with your Key Stage 2 class? Then why not join us at Pontefract Castle for our fun-filled, action-packed ‘Medieval Sports Week’ workshop!

Available to schools only.

In this session pupils will learn about and experience some of the sports and outdoor pursuits that would have been practiced by the people who lived at the castle in medieval times. From trying their hand at archery with a longbow to taking part in medieval shield drills, and even experiencing medieval falconry there will be lots of opportunity for all pupils to join in and get active in a day they will never forget!

We have both morning and afternoon sessions available with a maximum class size of 30 children, so book now to avoid disappointment!
