Details

A celebration of traditional British crafts like those that would have been used in the heyday of Pontefract Castle.

Come and see Artisan craft specialists from across the country demonstrate the skills and products that built medieval England and have a go at some yourself. A selection of unique handcrafted products will be available, a great opportunity to get ahead on your Christmas shopping if you are looking for something special.

Call into the visitor centre to explore the History of Pontefract Castle exhibition, have a go at some fun craft activities and dress up as a character from the past, who will you be?
