Willows Activity Farm is hosting its annual Pumpkin Festival at the end of the month, with the opportunity to pick more than 20,000 gourds from the fields.

There will also be a Carving Cavern, where the orange veggies can be turned into bootiful or frightful expressions.

Prizes are up for grabs each day in a Halloween Fancy Dress competition and there will be a Pumpkin Magic Show in an indoor theatre.

CEO at the farm, Nicola Ratcliffe, said there was something for everyone: “We’re very excited for the arrival of the Pumpkin Festival and it is bigger and better than ever.”

Tickets, which include character greets and live shows, are £23 for children and £22 for adults. There are online discount advance tickets available.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
