Description

Join us to celebrate summer’s bounty at our annual Pumpkin Festival.

Throughout the year we have been growing our very own pumpkins, alongside several different varieties of squash, on a patch in Durslade Walled Garden, located opposite the gallery. Come along to the Pumpkin Festival and share your homegrown harvest with us as we look forward to autumn.

The special day will include many activities for adults, children and families including storytelling performances, face painting, talks and workshops. Live music will be performed throughout the event by some of the South’s most talented acts.

The Grand Pumpkin & Squash Competition returns to the festival this year and will be judged by local resident and renowned gardener, Charles Dowding.

You are invited to bring along your homegrown pumpkins, squash or gourds and enter them into the following categories: ‘Heaviest Pumpkin’ or ’Best in Show’, the winner of each receiving a £500 cash prize. The winning pumpkin in the ‘Misfit’ category will receive a goody bag.

Enter the competition ahead of the festival here, or bring along your pumpkins on the day. All competition entries must arrive on site by noon.

Roth Bar & Grill will be serving seasonal food and drink, harvested from their kitchen garden.

This is a free event, but registering is recommended.
