Join The Wild Escape at Pontefract Museum this April to celebrate the native species that hide in our collections and displays.

The Wild Escape is a major new project led by Art Fund uniting hundreds of museums with schools and families in a celebration of UK wildlife and creativity.

Follow a trail to find the wildlife hidden in the museum and create an awesome artwork based on what the animals would do if they found their way home!

Sessions take place at 10:30am – 12:30pm and 1pm – 3pm.
