About the event

Come along to our traditional pumpkin carving event this half term. Work as a family (up to 6) in your own designated outdoor space to design and create your own pumpkin masterpiece. 1 pumpkin will be included with your table, additional pumpkins are available to purchase at the time of booking. You are welcome to spend up to an hour perfecting your creation using the tools we provide, and we will even take care of the clearing up!

This activity is designed for families to take part together, younger children do find pumpkin carving a challenge so they may need to direct a stronger pair of hands. Children must be accompanied by an adult (minimum one per two children). Please come suitably dressed for the weather as we will be outside for the whole session.   

Advance booking essential. Please book a table in one of the 4 sessions below. Make sure you book your timeslot first (each table includes one pumpkin and can be used by a group of 6 people). Additional pumpkins are available for purchase for other members of your group.

Meet outside the visitor centre on arrival.
