About

Come and create at Castleford Museum this summer and discover more about your local history with exciting activities, crafts and trails, including snapshots of the past. We’ll have plenty to make, do and discover with a different focus each week of the holidays.


Castleford was a centre of pottery making for hundreds of years, and the museum is full of examples from the practical to the beautiful. Take part in activities inspired by some of the most intricate designs we have on display and learn more about how they were made and why.


This is a free event and booking is not required.


SEND families are always welcome at all Castleford Museum sessions but they are running an SEND session for those groups who require a more relaxed atmosphere on Friday 18 August.


The session will be run with more sensory activities, more focus on independent learning, a lower light level and with a sensory tent and ear defenders available upon request.
