Come to Pontefract Castle for Ilbert’s fly about!

Dragons need to run and fly about to stay healthy.

We’re having a super sports day – dragon style!

Meet Ilbert’s sporty friends and race to seek out the noisy dragon eggs.

You can even find out what a dragon’s favourite fruits and vegetables are!


10am – 3pm, drop-in

Ilbert’s Fly About 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!
