New Pumpkin Festival at Tapnell Farm

This October half term, 22nd – 30th, you can celebrate the humble pumpkin at Tapnell Farm, with a Pumpkin Festival, a new stand-alone, all-weather event in the Farm Park’s event barn.

Join them for lots of pumpkin related festivities from pick your own pumpkin and carving, to flinging a pumpkin and catapulting some corn – or why not try your skill at axe throwing and pumpkin bowling!  Plus, there will be live music, pumpkin flavoured drinks and treats, licensed bar and carving competitions. The Pumpkin Festival is free admission and has free parking.  Some activities will have a small charge.

Pick your own Pumpkin Patch.  Back for another year with a bumper crop of pumpkins, put on your wellies and find the perfect pumpkin to take home. Pumpkin Patch at Tapnell Farm will be open on the weekends of 8th & 9th and 15th & 16th October (no additional activity).  Then daily from Saturday 22nd – Sunday 30th October for the Pumpkin Festival.
