A spooktacular series of events is set to entertain families this October half term.

Kids can get involved with a series of Halloween-themed events at Tumbledown on Radipole Lane, Weymouth, on Sunday, October 26 between 10am and 1pm.

The young visitors can pick their own pumpkin to carve, as well as embrace their creative side by creating an autumn leaf animal collage, as well as leaf printing.

Chairman of Dorset Council's Environment and Services Committee, Councillor Ryan Hope, said: “This is a great opportunity for children to explore their creative talents and connect with the natural world around them over the October half-term.”

Tumbledown is a former farm which Weymouth Town Council is developing into a community asset where people come together to connect with nature and benefit from community-led growing, learning and well-being opportunities.

Organisers have asked for a £3 donation per pumpkin and adult supervision is required for the pumpkin carving activity.

People are encouraged to walk or cycle to the event.

Please note that there is limited space on site for parking and you may need to park down at the bottom of the hill.
