Details

Join us at Pontefract Museum and Pontefract Castle today as we delve into the town's amazing medieval history!

Travel back centuries to a time when Pontefract was one of the county's most vibrant and important towns. A time of friaries and fairs, of royal intrigue and regicide, a time when the mighty castle dominated the landscape and was known as "The Key to the North".

Immerse yourself in this time as you investigate medieval objects, discover fascinating stories from Pontefract's medieval past and make medieval inspired crafts to keep.

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