Coming up: the third Squash & Pumpkin Festival

A6The third Squash Festival at Tolhurst Organic will be held earlier this year, to bank on warm weather, and it will be on Sunday, 4 October, from 11 am to 5pm
More than 1000 people attended the event last year, and attractions included a farmers’ market, food sampling, live music, bouncy castle, farm walk, face-painting and even message and psychic readings.
We had a carved pumpkin competition and a “Guess the weight of a giant pumpkin” one.
This year we are growing our own lantern and giant pumpkins, to add to the galore of edible squashes of all forms, colours and shapes.
It has become a good local tradition and we are now inviting stall holders for the third festival at Hardwick Estate.
If you would like to run a stall at the festival, please get in touch. Application form is posted on our website in Events. Otherwise, get your orange colour frocks, call you friends and come for a great day out!
