Bugs are brilliant!

Join Pontefract Castle in the Activity Zone to find out what sort of habitats are best for different types of bugs. You can also make your own mini bug hotel to take home and provide shelter to more marvellous minibeasts! We will be using lots of fun natural and recycled materials.

SEND families are always welcome at all Wakefield Museums & Castles sessions but the team are running this SEND session for those groups who require a more relaxed atmosphere.
