Join the Halloween fun this October half term with the Haven House Pumpkin Plod.

The grumpy Pumpkin King has taken control of the forest – can you help us cheer him up by completing this Halloween themed family fun walk on the outskirts of London? Starting and finishing at the hospice in Woodford Green, enjoy a 2k or 5k plod through the forest completing challenges to help create our witch’s potion that will make the Pumpkin King smile. It really is the perfect half term event for the whole family.

The Haven House Pumpkin Plod theme is Pumpkins and Bats. If orange is your colour, go pumpkins all the way, or don your wings and embrace your inner Batman.

  • 5k Halloween themed route through Epping Forest
  • 2k route encompassing Epping Forest and Haven House woodland walk (suitable for pushchairs)
  • 2 starting times: 11am or 2.30pm
  • Fun walk for all the family
  • Ticket prices: Child (under 12s, £5), Adult (£10) or Family of four (£25). Entry fee includes pumpkin per family, activity sheet and sweet treats.
  • We would like to make Pumpkin Plod bigger and better than ever, so this year we are asking if you could aim to raise some money by asking your friends and family to sponsor you. The registration fee only covers the cost of running the event so we do rely on sponsorship to help support our children and families. One way to raise the sponsorship is to use our fun Pumpkin King sweepstake.

Throughout the day there will be face painting, hot chocolate, pumpkin themed treats, a BBQ and more. After the plod you will also receive a pumpkin to take home and carve.

Take a look at last years brilliant Pumpkin Plod and book your tickets today!
