Pumpkin Carving

For some fiendish Hallowe'en fun pop along to Chirk Castle from 24 to 31 October and try your hand at pumpkin carving.

  • Booking not needed

Pumpkins are £4 each and will be ready cleaned out, and then we have stencils, carving sets and tea lights to make your design. Help will be on hand to show you how to get started.

Pumpkin carving will take place at Home Farm, and you can leave your pumpkin with us and collect it on your way home.

Access to the Home Farm area for pumpkin carving is free, but a normal admission ticket is required to enter the castle or gardens. National Trust members free.
