Spookley Pumpkin Festival 2019 (various dates)

Saturday 12 October - Sunday 3 November 2019 

For a great half term Halloween experience, climb aboard the Pumpkin Express at Apley Farm, when you can hear the Spookley story being read by a friendly Mrs Pumpkin. The Express will take you to the pumpkin patch where you can select your own pumpkin. Once back in the courtyard, you can carve it & enter our daily competition for the best carved pumpkin. 

As you leave don’t forget to buy your very own copy of the book ‘Spookley the Square Pumpkin’ & even your own soft Spookley toy or DVD film available at Paint & Create in the Courtyard . The story book carries a strong anti-bullying message, which is shared with school children across the country.* Pumpkin Carving Cavern does not require pre-booking.

To complete your Spookley experience, pop into the Creamery Café for a special pumpkin based treats.

This event is an outdoors event, please ensure children are wearing suitable clothing & footwear to go on to the field. Please note all adults riding the Pumpkin Express must book a place & a minimum of one responsible adult must accompany a child/group of children.
