What story can a statue tell?

Art has always been used to tell and share stories, but these meanings are often lost.

Discover some of the stories behind Castleford Museum‘s Roman statues, and have fun making your own tall tales, with story dice, crafting and more.

This workshop is part of WordFest 2023.

#MakeWordsCount #WordFest

SEND families are always welcome at all of our sessions but Castleford Museum are running this SEND session for those groups who require a more relaxed atmosphere.

This free 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.
