Ghosts and ghouls reign at Northfields Allotments’ Pumpkin Trail.
On Saturday 26th October from 3pm-7pm, Northfields Allotments’ will hold its annual Halloween Pumpkin Trail.
The pumpkin trail will be lined with some 150 carved pumpkins, creating a circular trip around the site past witches’ grottos, scarecrows, ethereal spirits and many other spooky decorations. As darkness falls, the path through the site will be lit up by the pumpkins.
Amongst other ghoulish treats, there will be tasty homemade cakes and tea, produce from the allotments, as well as a barbeque, and our famous mulled wine. Entrance is free but a donation is welcome.
This will be our fourth Halloween event and as always we’re looking forward to seeing many of our visitors in their costumes and makeup.
Dogs are welcome on a lead, but werewolves are asked not to howl in case it disturbs the neighbours.
If you plan to come after 5pm please bring a torch as some areas of the site can be quite dark.
We do have a buggy park but we also ask visitors to leave their buggies at home if possible as the paths are more suited to wheelbarrows than buggies.
Previous Pumpkin Trails have attracted up to 4,000 visitors, many in costume, to Northfields Allotments, which is an important historic site dating back to 1832 – making it London’s oldest allotments – and a vital part of Ealing’s natural heritage.
Northfields Allotment is London’s oldest surviving allotment site, established in 1832. It now faces the threat of development. Please help save this invaluable community hub and historic site by signing and sharing this petition.
