There’s loads to do besides picking pumpkins!

You can go on a hunt for Toad and check out our famous pumpkin house! Plus there’s a host of fun patch games to play.

Find out more about all the activities on offer here.


There are a range of interesting crafts available. Enjoy a chance to make your own witch’s broom – not for brushing but definitely for flying – or try your hand at crafting your own magic wand!

It doesn’t stop there. Give your child the chance to really use their imagination by creating a tin can bat & spider!
