Families are invited to come along and take advantage of free entry to ‘Pumpkins and Potions’. In addition to the Autumnal pumpkin patch – where you just pay for the pumpkins, there will be games like pumpkin bowling to take part in, making it the perfect, low cost, activity for half-term.
On-site, warming drinks and delicious snacks will be available from a newly renovated catering truck, with hay bales for seating. Around the site there will be several opportunities to take spooky selfies, and the team at Boughton have launched a competition for the best ‘Pumpkins & Potions’ picture, with a cash prize of £100. All you have to do is snap a selfie at the event and share it to Boughton’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/BoughtonHouseandEstate, or Instagram, www.instagram.com/boughton_house_official, with the #BoughtonPumpkins to be entered into the competition.
On All Hallows’ Eve itself, families are invited to come along and take advantage of a safe trick or treating space. Sam Rees, Estate Manager at Boughton House and Estate says:
“It’s a great opportunity for families to come along and embrace Halloween. They can get dressed up in their best Halloween costumes, pick a pumpkin and have a great time. Food and drink will be available, entry is free, and we will have some tasty treats for little ones, and maybe even some terrifying tricks too! We hope it will be a great event for the local community.”
