Slindon Pumpkin Festival

There's only two weeks till Halloween, and a popular family tradition around this time of year is going out to find the biggest and best pumpkins to pick!

This year, look no further than Slindon in West Sussex - known as Britain's pumpkin capital!  At their annual festival we're sure you'll be impressed with what they have to offer...

The village is well know for its autumnal displays, and adopts a different theme each year to create fun and interesting collages using over 50 different types of pumpkin available to purchase! The late Ralph Upton grew pumpkins and squashes here for over 40 years and his son has since taken over, keeping the impressive pumpkins growing as strong as ever! 

It makes for a great family trip - the kids will be spoilt for choice with all the different shapes and colours! Halloween may just be once a year, but in the tiny village of Slindon this wonderful variety of pumpkins is celebrated at a huge scale, and now is the time to go! Find out more here.

Where do you go to pick your pumpkins?
