Spookley Pumpkin Festival at Apley Farm Shop
14th October 2014
As last year, climb aboard the Pumpkin Express, when you can hear the Spookley story being read by a friendly Mrs Pumpkin. The Express will also take you to the pumpkin patch where you can select your own pumpkin. Once back in the courtyard, you can carve it & enter our daily competition for the best carved pumpkin, to be judged at 5pm on Friday 31 October when the 3 winners will receive a prize.
For the Pumpkin Express, turning up on the day is OK, but some days were very busy last year & booking will guarantee your place. Just go to https://apleyfarmshop.digitickets.co.uk/tickets to book tickets via the Apley website.
Tickets are £10, £6.50 & £4: The £10 Orange ticket includes a ride on the pumpkin express, carving your own pumpkin, a play in Pigg’s Playbarn & a copy of Spookley Square Pumpkin story book. Tickets at £6.50 include the Pumpkin Express, pumpkin & carving cavern. Tickets at £4 include only the pumpkin & carving cavern.
As you leave via the Farm Shop, don’t forget to pick up your very own copy of the book ‘Spookley the Square Pumpkin’ & even your own soft Spookley toy (also available from Alley Katz toy shop in the Courtyard). The story book carries a strong antibullying message, which is shared with school children across the country.
To complete your Spookley experience, pop into the Creamery Café for lunch & select our delicious pumpkin soup in the Creamery Café, served in a mini pumpkin with a pumpkin muffin.
We’re giving away free pumpkin recipe cards, so when you buy a pumpkin in the Farm Shop you can get cooking at home !
There also will be a free friendly pumpkin trail on the Skylark Nature Trail, for all to try out.
