Medieval Sports at Pontefract Castle – sessions for home educators.

Join us at Pontefract Castle for our fun-filled, action-packed ‘Medieval Sports’ workshop! In this session children will learn about and experience some of the sports and outdoor pursuits that would have been practiced by the people who lived at the castle in medieval times. From trying their hand at archery to taking part in medieval sword & shield drills, there will be lots of opportunity for all children to join in and get active!

This workshop is suitable for children aged 5- 16 years old. Children will work in small groups with parental support, around a carousel of led activities. A member of our team will be on hand to meet your group and support your visit.

The workshop will be available Friday 19th July, 2019. It is 2 hours long with morning and afternoon sessions available. The cost is £6.00 per child, adults are free and booking is essential.
