Free event Family friendly


How did the people of Castleford make dark nights bright in the past? Discover for yourself at Castleford Museum as we stay open later for an evening of family activities all about lanterns and lights.

Get hands on with light themed objects from our collections, experiment with different materials to create your own light art, and make a colourful lantern to take home.
