Head to Hestercombe this half term and take part in The Great Golden Pumpkin Hunt.
Willow the Witch is preparing a special magical potion. The most important ingredient is a slice of a golden pumpkin but they are very rare and difficult to find. However, there is rumoured to be one within the gardens at Hestercombe. It’s your job to hunt high and low – up in the woods and down by the lake – and see if you can find the pumpkin and help Willow complete her potion. Before you begin your search, head to the Apple Loft to make your own magic wand then step inside Willow’s home in the Octagon Summerhouse where you’ll find magic trinkets lining the walls. Along the way you will find the other six ingredients for the potion plus a couple of spells to keep trolls and naughty pixies away. If you succeed on your mission and find the golden pumpkin, you will receive a delicious chocolate pumpkin.
On Halloween (31st October), Willow the witch herself will be in visiting the gardens.
