Tickets are now on sale for Farmer Copleys' Pumpkin Festival 2020!

Our Pumpkin Festival will be here before you know it and it’s guaranteed to be bigger and better than before! We’ve ordered the seeds, over 20 different varieties for 2020 so we’ll have pumpkin plants of every shape size and colour, to ensure you find your perfect pumpkin.

There will be a rainbow of pumpkins, red, green, white, blue, black, yellow, mixed, warty and of course orange! We have over 20 acres that we have grown for you to choose your perfect pumpkin from. Don your wellington boots, wrap up warm and head to the fields for a fun filled day of good honest pumpkin related fun.

What’s on during the festival?
- PYO Pumpkins, choose from our thousands upon thousands of pumpkins of all different shapes, sizes and colours.
- Carve your pumpkins on site with our helpers. We’ll sort all the mess out so you can don’t have to!
- Eat pumpkins! Discover that there’s more to the pumpkin than just carving, with delicious treats including Pumpkin Soup, Pumpkin Sausages and of course Pumpkin Pie.
- Storytime with the ‘Not So Wicked Witch’ and keep an eye out for the Pumpkin Princess who is looking for her perfect pumpkin.
- We’ve got loads of activities and fun going on, including our assault course, teacups, tractor rude, pumpkin express, crazy bulls, corn cannons and much more.
- Check out the tasty treats from our Moo Café and visit our award-winning Farm Shop to take some of our delights home with you.
- Beer and Gin Shed
- Loads more to be announced!

We are listening closely to government guidelines and our priority is the safety of our team and of course our lovely visitors. As we stand there are no current plans to close the festival and we will move forward assuming it will be on. Obviously this can change at a moment’s notice and we will be in touch with ticket holders and make a statement on our socials if this does happen.

At the festival we will observe social distancing, have numerous sanitising and hand washing points throughout the field and will go above and beyond to make sure it is a safe, fun experience for all the family. Numbers have been reduced to ensure crowding isn't an issue as well as allocated time slots to ease any potential congestion at Admissions.

There will be peak and off peak tickets this year with the peak dates being the busy weekends that were had last year. Tickets will be available on each day if there is still some available, although you will need to purchase them online to be scanned on entry, its really easy and takes 2 minutes!
