The hospice has teamed up with Spec Savers to stage the event.

The Halloween Pumpkin Hunt, on October 26, is open to children aged 3-11 and costs just £5 to join. Grown ups are free, under 3s are too, but will not be able to collect goodies. If you want your under 3 to collect a map and treats, please register them for a full child ticket.

Children will be given their own Pumpkin Passport to get stamped and will receive treats at stops along the route. Dress up in your most original Halloween costumes for the chance to win a fantastic family prize.

Individual fancy dress winners from each of our Halloween Pumpkin Hunt locations will be entered into the Grand Pumpkin fancy dress costume competition for the chance to win a Merlin Family Pass worth up to £1,000, kindly donated by our corporate partner Active International.
