Families can create a willow wreath or star to take home for Christmas. Wreaths and stars will be made using natural materials.

Join us in the Pontefract Castle Activity Zone to create your own willow wreath or star decoration for Christmas. We will be using natural materials foraged locally.

This event has limited capacity to give more space for SEND families to participate in activities.

Toilet facilities are located next to the activity zone.

Things to be aware of:

The museum display in the visitor centre has interactives that make sounds when visitors press buttons.

The light levels vary in different areas of the visitor centre.

Our staff can advise on areas where interactives and light levels may be of concern.

We have ear defenders we can provide upon request and a small pop-up space for children who may need an enclosed space to calm down. The lights in the visitor centre will be set as normal.
