‘Rome from Home’ and explore Castleford’s Roman heritage

16/06/2020, PR-9439

​Wakefield Council will be running a week-long online celebration of Castleford’s Roman heritage from 22 – 28 June.

‘Rome from Home’ will replace this year’s Roman Festival due to the coronavirus outbreak.

However, residents will not miss out, with lots of online fun family activities planned each day to explore Castleford’s Roman roots.

There’ll be art and craft challenges, virtual tours of Castleford museum and some of its Roman artefacts, puzzles, recipes and lots more.
