Forthcoming Talk

As part of the Heritage Open Day, we will be delivering a talk on Sunday 11th September entitled ‘Richard II & John of Gaunt – Loyalty and Distrust’. These were two of Pontefract Castle’s most important residents for very different reasons. We will be investigating the life and key events of Richard’s reign and his turbulent relationship with his uncle and Lord of Pontefract, John of Gaunt. Please watch out for further details including how to book.
