Sun 27 Oct 2019, 11 am – 4 pm
Join us to celebrate Summer’s bounty at our annual Pumpkin Festival. This special day includes a host of activities for adults and children including storytelling sessions, face painting, craft activities, talks, and live music.
The Grand Pumpkin & Squash Competition takes centre stage this year and will be judged by local resident and renowned gardener Charles Dowding.
Locals are invited to bring along their own home grown pumpkins, gourds and squashes to enter into the categories for the ‘Heaviest Pumpkin’ and ‘Best in Show: Squash or Pumpkin’, each with a £500 cash prize. The winner of the ‘Misfit’ category will receive a goody bag.
All competition entries must arrive on site by noon. Entries are accepted on the day or you can enter the competitions online here.
Onsite restaurant Roth Bar & Grill will be serving seasonal food throughout the day, as they harvest their wide variety of squash from their kitchen garden.
Free packs of mixed seeds are available to pick up at the gallery from May 2019. These seeds are a combination of Atlantic Giant, Munchkin and King of Mammoth pumpkin and Crown Prince and Marina di Chiogga squash. Until stocks last.
