Free event Family friendly


For Our Year 2024, the Castleford Museum Community Cases are shining the spotlight on star performers. Family-friendly, interactive displays explore the theme of performance in all its kinds, from musical to artistic and sporting. Castleford has proud performing heritage, be it prowess on the rugby league field, star-studded galas or scene-stealing creative flair.

See how Castleford Academy’s girls’ teams are leading the way for women’s rugby league. Marvel at the school’s honours board, hear from former students who have made it to the sport’s highest level, and see the current stars in action.

Discover the quirky story of Castleford’s unique Reight Neet Aht, an annual marbles contest held in the town from 1936-1958, raising money for Leeds Infirmary. Find out how this distinctly Yorkshire event attracted international attention and famous cameos.
