What a packed summer!

Over the last 6 weeks we have been delivering summer holiday family workshops.

From making butter at Sandal Castle, to squeezing oranges at Wakefield Museum (with our under 5 visitors) to looking at what amazing, curious and even eccentric people have come from the district - our teams have provided activities to keep our younger visitors busy over the summer months.

Family workshops have given us the chance to delve into the wonderful past events that make Wakefield the city it is today.  Providing a mix of interesting facts with hands on activities has allowed children to connect with the past in fun and varied ways.

As well as booked sessions, there were drop-in activities at both castles and museums, giving families the opportunity to create leather bookmarks, design a coat of arms or take part in a holiday trail.  

There's more to come! 
We are already looking ahead and planning sessions for the October half term, so if you would like to be added to the family activities mailing list please send us your e-mail address.

Wakefield Museum provides children’s activity sheets and digital trails on a daily basis for families to enjoy.  Just ask a member of the museums front of house staff for more information.
