Pontefract Liquorice Festival

Pontefract liquorice festival logo - Sunday 8 July 2018. Celebrate our town's unique links to liquorice!

Sunday 8 July

Join us in celebrating our town’s unique historic links with liquorice during a day of sweet-themed fun and activities for all the family
across the town centre - and at Pontefract Castle!

Browse the colourful stalls of our festival market in the historic town centre, selling a wide variety of produce - many with a liquorice twist!

Enjoy delicious food and drink, live entertainment and fun children’s activities throughout the day, kindly sponsored by Tangerine Confectionery.

This year’s festival has extended to include more sweet-inspired fun at Pontefract Castle including showings of ‘Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory’ (1971) on our huge cinema screen.

What’s more, you can travel between the town centre and the castle using our free Park and Ride service - or you can hitch a ride on our free Liquorice Land Train, featuring our guest conductor Lucy Liquorice!
