Something wicked this way comes this Halloween half term… all aspiring little sorcerers are invited to Witches and Wizards at Pontefract Castle!

This family-friendly event will have you spellbound as the atmospheric surroundings of Pontefract Castle put you in a magical, mythical mood.

First, enjoy fun, wizardry-themed crafts and head into the fresh air to take part in some witchy outdoor activities.

At 10am to 11am each day there is a relaxed SEND bookable session. SEND groups are welcome at all events, but the Pontefract Castle team are running this for visitors who prefer a more relaxed atmosphere with restricted numbers.
