Pontefract Castle [2018 – 2020]

Volunteer

I have overseen children’s crafts, assisted with dungeon tours, advised visitors on the castle’s history and assisted with summer events on the castle bailey and the gates. I often find myself learning new information regarding the castle’s history to explain to visitors, answer a variety of visitor questions, direct visitors to areas of the castle and relay updates regarding the castle. Pontefract Castle has recently completed conservation work after 3 years, so as part of my role as a volunteer I have had to keep up to date to keep visitors up to date.
