October half-term at Packwood

Children in Halloween costume

Join the team at Packwood this October half-term for a whole week of fiendish fun and frights for the whole family to enjoy on our Hallowe’en trail between Saturday 21 – Sunday 29 October.

After being successfully banished from Packwood two years ago, the Wicked Warwickshire Witch has sneakily found her way back and is lurking down in the Welly Walk.

Get your wellies on and head down there to follow the trail and help us banish her again. Complete the trail successfully and there might just be a well-deserved prize at the end!

Picking pumpkins is great fun

The gardeners at Packwood have also been growing an abundance of bright orange pumpkins in the Kitchen Garden ready for October half-term. Fortunately they have many uses and will end up as soup in our cafe or as scary Hallowe'en faces to find in the house.

So crunch through the fallen leaves, admire the autumnal colours in the trees and don't forget to sample a warm bowl of pumpkin soup or hot chocolate in the Garden Kitchen Cafe after you've finished your trail.

Enjoy Halloween with us

The Hallowe’en event takes place from Saturday 21 - Sunday 29 October from 11am – 3.30pm. Each trail costs £2.50 and children will receive sweets and a take home craft and an activity and quiz sheet for the fun to continue at home.
