Pumpkin Fest, organised by Brandon Country Park and International English School (IES) Breckland, is set to have its best year yet with an array of autumnal activities.

Tesco in Brandon will be providing 250 pumpkins for a pumpkin-carving stall, as well as giving out a free 'Trick or Treat' goody bag full of tasty sweets. The finished pumpkins can be even be entered into the pumpkin carving competition, or taken home to decorate your house.

Other activities include face-painting, Halloween story-telling, a spooky trail, Dusk till Dawn falconry, and of course lots of festive inspired food throughout the day.
