Pumpkin Picking Weekends
Booking is essential for everyone visiting our Pumpkin Picking Fields this year. This is necessary in order to stagger entry times and minimise crowding. Bookings of up to 6 people from the same household must be made in advance.
Face coverings are not required by law as our picking fields are outdoors, however we request customers to wear masks when queueing and paying at the tills.
Toilet facilities are not available anywhere on site (including the adjacent Garden Centre) during our Picking Weekends. Please bear this in mind, particularly if travelling from far away.
Booking in advance is essential
Unlike previous years, tickets cannot be bought on the day. Please do not arrive without a confirmed booking
During our Pumpkin Festival, temperature checks are in place, we cannot admit entry to anyone with a high temperature.
This year Pumpkin Festival tickets are for the following timed sessions;
9:30 am - 12:00pm
12:30 pm - 3:00pm
3:30pm to 6:00 pm
Timed bookings are necessary to prevent overcrowding and maintain a safe, socially distanced environment.
We have considered many options and this is the only viable way for us to run our Festival in the current climate
Those visiting our Woodland Performance will be able to remain on site for the entire length of the session their performance falls in.
We reccommend arriving early to maximise the amount of time you can spend on site.
Face coverings are not mandatory in our Pumpkin Festival as it is an outdoor event.
As a consideration to others, we do ask customers to wear masks when queueing and paying at the tills.
Lavatories will be available for ticket holders only inside the Pumpkin Festival.
Face Coverings must be worn
In accorance with current Government advice for the performing arts, face coverings must be worn at all times by everyone attending a performance in our Woodland Theatre.
Do not purchase a ticket if you, or anyone in your party are unable to wear a face covering.
Performance and arrival times
Tickets to our woodland perforamance include entry to The Pumpkin Festival for the time session your performance falls in, which is different to previous years.
For example, the 2:40pm performance falls within the 12:30pm - 3pm Pumpkin Festival time slot. Those with tickets for the 2:40pm woodland performance may enter the Pumpkin Festival from 12:30pm but would have to leave at 3pm. It is not possible to enter during an earlier session or stay longer by joining a later session.
We strongly suggest arriving early to maximise the amount of time you can spend in the Pumpkin Festival.
