Pumpkin Patch is a name given to a festival featuring many pumpkins, but also can include many of the other aspects of an autumn festival and we always like to mix the new things we bring with local traditions so expect to find local food and drink from the autumn season available in addition to some new delicious treats. There will also be market stalls where some amazing craftsmen will be selling some beautiful creations!
