Celebrate Autumn this year

Kinver Halloween lantern

There are lots of inspiring and creative things to do at Kinver Edge this autumn. From russet coloured walks, to pressing apples and making willow lanterns, there’s something for all the family to enjoy at the rock houses.

As the days begin to grow shorter and the colour of nature starts to rust, Kinver Edge is the perfect place to celebrate this magical season. Curious and cosy houses carved out of rock and acres of winding woodland provide the perfect setting for traditional crafts and festivities.

Between 20-21 October celebrations will kick off with Apple Weekend. Located in our heritage orchard, visitors are welcome to come and try their hand at a bit of apple pressing using a traditional press and have a taste of some freshly squeezed juice. Country crafts such as woodturning and rag-rugging will be on demonstration nearby as well, with visitors welcome to have a go.

In the lead up to Hallowe’en, we invite little visitors to come and make a traditional lantern using willow, paper and fallen leaves that you can take home. Then on Hallowe’en night, we will hold a magical lantern procession through the winding woodland paths of Kinver Edge following twinkling carved pumpkins until we reach the very top.

If you’re lucky, you might even spot some of our lesser horseshoe bats flitting above the hillfort. Further details of our autumn events can be found in our ‘what’s on’ section.
