Trengwainton's October half-term happenings 2018

Looking for colourful days out with the family this October half term? Here’s a run-down of the holiday happenings that are going on in the garden at Trengwainton.

When does it all begin?

It all kicks off on Sunday 21 October with our annual Pumpkin fun day, when we try to find as many silly ways as possible to have pumpkin-themed fun.
There’ll be things like, pumpkin hoopla, a pumpkin shy, pumpkin tasting and of course the ever-popular pumpkin carving (£3.00 per pumpkin).


Half term week

From Monday 22 to Thursday 25 October if you come along to the bookshop between 11-4 you can have a go at apple bobbing with Trengwainton grown apples (while stocks last).
If you didn’t manage to get along to Pumpkin fun day the pumpkin-themed games will still be in the orchard for you to try during half term week. 


Spooky storytelling

On Thursday 25 October you can hear tales of Trengwainton with a spooky twist when local storyteller Mark Harandon will be in the bell tent in the orchard.
The stories will start on the hour between 11am-4pm (none at 1pm) and although booking’s not necessary, we may need to limit numbers for each session.


Exploring the rest of the garden

The garden has lots of winding, wooded paths that are perfect for popping on a pair of wellies, grabbing a spotter sheet and going autumn colour spotting together.
There’ll also be a pumpkin trail around the garden and pumpkins of all colours, shapes and sizes ready to be discovered in the walled garden.
