Halloween 2017: We take a quick look at some spooky events on offer across Sussex

Slindon - All season

Thanks to late founder Ralph Upton, Slindon has the reputation of being the UK’s pumpkin capital. Now headed by his son Robin, the team puts on a display every autumn; 2016’s supported Sussex Wildlife Trust and was named The Birds and the Bees and 2017’s will support Mind. Whether they’re for carving or eating, there’s a variety of pumpkins and squashes on sale throughout the season.
