Halloween Half Term 2020


Heaps of spooktastic family friendly Halloween fun!

Pick-Your-Own Pumpkin Experience…

The Messy Play Barn will be transformed into a spooky spectacular!

We take pride in our restyling abilities for our events – completely themed and spooky (but not scary), you won’t recognise our Barn!

Join us there for our popular Pick-Your-Own Pumpkin Experience! We’ve been busy growing monster pumpkins in the orchard so you’ll be able to choose your own and decorate it, ready to take home for Halloween!

This year, our Pumpkin Experience is INCLUDED in every paying child’s Farm admission!*

Guided to the Pumpkin Patch by some colourful people…

This year our resident Witches & Wizards will be joined by an array of quirky fun entertaining characters!

24th & 25th Oct – Cinderella and her oh so eligible sisters

26th, 27th & 28th Oct – Adventurous Alice and friends

29th, 30th & 31st Oct & 1st Nov – Adventurous Alice, a mean Queen and our Tea Loving Hatter

Make sure you book a slot for our Pumpkin Experience to be entertained and amazed by these incredible characters!

Spooky Animal Encounter…

NEW TIMES ADDED… At 11am, 12.30pm, 3pm and 4.30pm each day, we’ll have a special 30 minute encounter for those who are brave enough… meet some creepy (but of course friendly) critters up close!

Tickets for this spooky encounter are £1 each and very limited, book ASAP if you’d like to join us in the Eco Centre for this NEW for 2020 experience!

Half-Term Fun for All…

Our staff will be in Fancy Dress and you’ll find one of our special characters roaming around for you to meet (in a socially distanced way).

Make sure you dress up as well as there’ll be on-the-spot prizes for best Fancy Dress!

Follow the Scarecrow Trail too!

And of course there’s all the usual Farm Fun – head to Pets Corner to spot Beastly Bugs and the Wildlife Zone to see the owls (or as we call them at this time of year, H’Owls!) and enjoy lots of fresh air and play. Plus, book to groom the Pesky Ponies or Dastardly Donkeys!

All-in-all it’s family friendly with a variety of themed, educational and fun experiences and activities for all ages – so come along and join us!
