Love Your Woods Pumpkin Carving At Hainault Forest

Event Image
At a fun-filled craft workshop, carve your very own Jack-o'-lantern in time for All Hallows' Eve.

Will you choose a smiley face or a spooky grimace? Children can let their imagination run wild at this family-friendly event.

As part of our Love Your Woods campaign, we encourage you to protect fragile woodland ecosystems by disposing of pumpkins responsibly. Rather than leaving them in our woods, where they can harm wildlife, you could instead make a pumpkin soup, create a bird feeder or pop them on a compost heap.

Booking in advance is essential. Please email [email protected] to reserve your space.
