After its huge success last year, the Spookley Pumpkin Festival returns to Farrington’s Farm Shop this autumn! Pick from thousands of home-grown pumpkins from their pumpkin patch, carve Spookley shapes and try some seasonal pumpkin dishes. Or cosy up and listen to the heart-warming story of Spookley, the square shaped pumpkin.
Supporting the national anti-bullying week, Spookley tells the story of a square pumpkin who lives in a pumpkin patch with a crop of round pumpkins. His appearance leads to him being bullied by the other vegetables because he is a different shape.
Our hero goes on to save the day and becomes friends with the other pumpkins. The tale is one that both children and adults can all relate to, helping children to accept differences in people and deal with their problems in a positive way.
The pumpkin festival will be taking place at Farrington’s over the weekend of 14th and 15th October and the half term week from 21st – 29th October. There are a number of Spookley festivals taking place across the UK this autumn but this is the only one of its kind in Somerset.
