From pumpkins to spooky activities, we take a quick look at some events on offer across Sussex this Halloween

Slindon Pumpkins - From the last week in September


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 supported Mind. Whether they’re for carving or eating, there’s a variety of pumpkins and squashes on sale throughout the season.
