Pumpkins in the Park

Pumpkins in the Park week is 24-30 October, a week when the humble pumpkin is celebrated in all its possible forms! The Savill Garden is one of Britain’s greatest ornamental gardens. Neither a botanical garden, nor a kitchen garden attached to a great house, it is a garden for the garden’s sake, enjoyed by horticulturalists and enthusiasts alike. It never fails to charm visitors who come to explore its 35 acres of contemporary and classically designed gardens and exotic woodland.

Make your own pumpkin mask!

11am – 4pm

Create your own spooky pumpkin mask in The Savill Building. Pumpkin masks are £2 each and will be available from reception.

This activity does not need to be booked. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

The Savill Garden Pumpkin Competition

Purchase your pumpkin plants from The Savill Garden shop during Spring Gardens Week 23 – 30 May or source your own plant and nurture it to be as big as possible.

There will be prizes for the largest pumpkins and winners will be announced during Pumpkins in The Park week.
