Pontefract Big Weekend Pontefract Big Weekend

Pontefract Big Weekend Competition

Located in the heart of West Yorkshire, the historic market town of Pontefract is home to the picturesque ruins of one of England’s most important castles (once known as “The Key To The North”) as well as a brace of beautiful parks, some outstanding examples of Georgian architecture, and a whole host of independent boutiques and coffee shops.

The town has history galore – the site of the first secret ballot, this is a place where the country’s fate was decided more than once; uncover its story at Pontefract Museum.

Sports fans take note – the town is also home to Pontefract Racecourse, the longest continuous flat racing circuit in Europe.

We’re giving one lucky winner the opportunity to have two fantastic Pontefract experiences:

  • Two tickets to this year’s Proms at the Castle on Saturday 29 June.
    Enjoy a rousing evening of classical music, set amid the spectacular backdrop of the historic ruins of Pontefract Castle. Bring along a picnic or choose from something delicious on site, before sitting back and listening to a magnificent evening of moving melodies from the West Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra as the sun goes down beyond the castle.
  • Voucher for afternoon tea for two at Farmer Copleys.
    Farmer Copleys’ award-winning afternoon tea includes delectable finger sandwiches and decadent baked treats crafted with the finest locally sourced ingredients. Forget the traditional three-tier setup and embrace an honest, delicious experience that has been praised for its outstanding quality, taste, and inviting ambiance.
