Castleford Precinct

Come and admire the lighting up of the market hall and the Castleford Library and Museum building, plus the switch on of the Christmas lights, this November as part of Light Up!

From 3pm start your Christmas shopping (or for the very organised, get those final gifts!) and indulge in some food from the Speciality Market, then grab a spot to enjoy fantastic community acts and local talent on our festive stage, hosted by Rhubarb Radio.

After more festive photography? How about a shot in the giant Christmas snow globe? Step inside a magical winter wonderland for the perfect souvenir.

Want to meet the big man himself? Santa will be taking visits and present requests at Castleford Library from 5pm. Book your visit on 01977 722054. Tickets £1.

Castleford Library and Castleford Market Hall will be lit from 4pm and the Christmas lights will be switched on at 5:30pm, but that’s not the end of the fun! The entertainment on stage continues, so why not let the kids have a go on one of the funfair rides while you keep shopping in the Speciality Market, all in the glow of the twinkling Christmas lights.

Light Up takes place throughout the district from 17 Nov – 5 Dec – check out the full programme here, and find the latest news on social by following the hashtag #LightUpWFD
