Spooky Hallowe'en fun on the Rogate Pumpkin Patch

High winds forced the Rogate Pumpkin Patch to open later than planned as Storm Brian hit the area.

It was due to open on Saturday (October 22), but it was delayed until Sunday and the third half term holiday pumpkin event is bigger than ever.

Youngsters and their families are flocking to the spooky Hallowe’en spectacular which is open from 10am to 4pm every day and closing on Sunday evening.

Sophie Davey, who launched her pumpkin patch venture in 2015, said: “Because of the high winds on Saturday we just couldn’t get out there and set up the marquee and the gazebos, so we decided it was safer to wait until the storm had passed.

“We opened on Sunday and haven’t looked back. The weather has been kind to us and more people than ever before are visiting us.”

Special this year is Princess Elsa, Rogate’s own pumpkin royalty, who is in full costume and on hand to meet visitors.

The sea of pumpkins in the field off the A272 at Rogate gives the youngsters a chance to choose their own and take them home.

And other attractions include a spooky trailer, barrel rides, a jungle gym and the chance to smash, sling, design and carve a pumpkin and join in a host of other spooky Hallowe’en fun.

“Visitors can also enjoy eating pumpkins – we have soup, pie and cake,” said Sophie.

“We also love the children in come dressed ready for Hallowe’en and our face painters are on hand to finish off their costumes.”

“Our passion at the Rogate Pumpkin Patch is to see children running around the corn fields, happy, rosy cheeked and off screens. As farmers we can share our open space and achieve this.”

The entry fee is £2 for adults, £1 for children and under two year olds are given free entry.

The Pumpkin Princess is making an appearance every afternoon to spread pumpkin princess dust and to judge the spookiest costume.
