Well done to those that spotted the mistake in our e-newsletter that listed Pumpkin Trail & Treats as being in September, it is in fact in October. Thank you for pointing it out to us!
Get in the spirit for the pumpkin activities and trail around the gardens with lots of spooky fun and games for children by coming in Halloween fancy dress (yes, adults too!). Each day there will be a competition which is judged at 3pm in the Garden Terrace Tea Room.
On Wednesday 25th, Thursday 26th and Friday 27th of October you can enjoy the Pumpkin Trail & Treats, which run from 12:00 noon to 4:00pm each day with last admission at 2pm to allow time to do the Trail.
Children can bring along a pumpkin that they have pre-decorated – there is a daily prize for the best. [Note- we’ve had some amazing pumpkins over the years, but the judges will be looking for pumpkins that are mostly the child’s own work, rather than those decorated by adults.]
Upon arrival child tickets will be exchanged for the Pumpkin Passport that will be stamped by our spooky staff on duty at each of the games in the Gardens. Collect the stamps and present the Passport at the Gift Shop to claim a goody bag.
Non-participating under 3’s are free. Children under 3 are welcome to join in, but please purchase a Pumpkin Trail ticket for them so they can have a Pumpkin Passport and goody bag prize. [Note- most but not all of the activities are accessible for under 3’s].
The Garden Terrace Tea Room will be open during the event for the sale of hot drinks and snacks. The Gift Shop and Dinosaur Trail will also be open however the House, Park and Adventure Playground will be closed. Please note that there will be no disco this year.
Ticket prices: Adults-£3.50. Child (age guideline 3-10) – £6.95.
