Spook-tackular half-term events at Standalone Farm

A range of Halloween themed activities are coming up at Standalone Farm this October half-term in their last events of the season.

The farm, located on Wilbury Road in Letchworth, is running daily art and crafts from 11:30am to 3pm, across both the Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire school holidays, from 21 October to 3 November, with pumpkin carving also running on the weekend of the 26 and 27 October, ahead of Halloween.

Vanessa Sawyer, Visitor Experience Manager at Standalone Farm, says: “We’ve got something to appeal to all the little ‘ghouls’ and boys this half term, with art and craft activities running throughout the holidays as well as plenty of other activities. We’ve run our pumpkin carving sessions for the last couple of years and they have proved extremely popular, possibly because we take care of all the mess for the parents!”

All the spare parts of the pumpkin will go towards feeding the farm’s pigs, so no food from the event will go to waste.

On Friday 25 October the farm will be hosting a storytelling session from 1:45pm. Stories will be read by the characters from Broadway Theatre’s upcoming production of The Wind in the Willows. Sessions are included within the regular admission price to the farm, with all sessions being run on a first come, first served basis.

The cast of The Wind in the Willows will also be leading themed workshops at the Broadway Theatre on Tuesday 29 October. These workshops for children will include fun theatre-based game, and a Q&A session, where young people can learn more about putting on a theatre show. The workshops will take place from 11am-12pm for ages 6-9 and 1pm-2pm for ages 10-16. Tickets can be booked online at broadway-letchworth.com.

Standalone Farm will be closed from Monday 4 November, reopening in early 2020. For more information on visiting Standalone Farm, visit standalonefarm.com
