Enjoy some autumn and Halloween fun at Doddington Hall & Gardens with ghost hunting, pick your own pumpkins, and a scarecrow competition.

During October half-term, pay a visit to Doddington Hall for some fantastic autumnal and Halloween themed fun - most of it for free.

Ghost Hunter

Join Doddington Hall in the gardens this Halloween to experience undeniable and hair-raising evidence of ghostly activity. The proof presented for your perusal and reaction.

Spooky Halloween fun for all ages with the original Ghost Buster, Dr VanBurger, as your guide through the supernatural. It’s all outdoors in the gardens so come prepared for an October night you won’t forget in a hurry.

There are 7:30pm and 9pm shows daily from Wednesday 24th - Saturday 27th October. Children £7, adults £14. Book early on the Doddington Hall website to avoid disappointment!

Scarecrow Competition

Schoolchildren and community learning groups are invited to create a truly scary scarecrow for this year’s Build Your Own Scarecrow Competition. With a theme of ghosts and ghouls, it’s a chance for young creative thinkers to construct something truly scare-tastic. 

The scarecrows will be on display on the Gatehouse Lawn at Doddington daily between Saturday 20th – and Wednesday 31st October from 9am 'til 5pm.

To find out more and to enter a scarecrow, please email Hannah.

Pick Your Own Pumpkins

Visit Doddington Hall's pumpkin patch to choose a pumpkin for autumnal carving decorations or to make some delicious seasonal recipes using local ingredients (recipe ideas will be available from the Farm Shop).

Follow the signs to the pumpkin patch and your bring wellies! Please note that dogs (on leads) are only allowed in the seating area next to the patch and not in the patch.

The patch is free to enter, only pay for what you pick (from £2 to £8 depending on size). The patch will be open daily from 10am 'til 3pm on Saturday 13th - Sunday 14th and Saturday 20th - Wednesday 31st October.
