Free event Family friendly


Unlock your creativity with this session of Dragon Egg Scrap Modelling for SEND families at Pontefract Castle!

Join us for some eco-friendly, creative fun making recycled dragon crafts! Our friends at Renewi will be holding a scrap crafting event on Monday 3 April, reusing rubbish to make models, puppets and shadow theatres.

So come and let your imagination run wild and give new life to old rubbish!

This FREE session runs from 10am – 11am, and is for SEND families. Booking is essential. SEND families are welcome at all of our sessions but we are running this earlier SEND session for those families who require a more relaxed atmosphere, with restricted numbers. Book onto this session at

There is also a non-relaxed, drop-in session running 11am – 3pm

Dragon Egg Scrap Modelling is part of the Dragon Egg Week at Pontefract Castle, running from Saturday 1 April to Monday 10 April. Help Ilbert the Dragon find all of his eggs on a FREE new trail available every day!
