Calling all witches, wizards, ghosts, cats.. come and join Upton Tourist Information Centre in their Town Pumpkin Trail this Halloween Half Term.
This October half-term why not keep the children entertained and get another use out of that Halloween costume by taking part in the Upton Town Pumpkin Trail. (NB: Wearing of costumes optional) Taking place on Friday 29 October from 10am until 5pm on Saturday 30 October, there will be a number of friendly pumpkins displayed in the Tourist Information Office at The Pepperpot across the town in local shop windows. All you have to do is hunt out the pumpkins, write down their letters and return your completed trail form to a member of the TIC team (they may well be disguised as a friendly witch or Halloween cat!) in the Halloween bedecked Tourist Office. You will then be given your spooky-themed prize to take home with you.
There will also be a display of carved pumpkins leading to the Tourist Office. Which is your favourite design?
Why not also have an early look at some Christmas gift ideas available from the Tourist Information Centre. We have cards, calendars as well as local produce, fudge, biscuits, and jams and chutneys.
The Tourist Information and Pepperpot Heritage Centre is open throughout the Winter on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10am – 4pm (Closed 1:15- 1:45pm), with a special later opening for Halloween until 5pm on Friday 29-Saturday 30 October 2021.
We look forward to seeing you for the Upton Town Pumpkin Trail and wish you a Happy Halloween!
