Join our 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 in London? Starting and finishing at the hospice in Woodford Green. Enjoy a 5k plod through the forest completing challenges to help create our witch’s potion that will make the Pumpkin King smile. With the alternative option of a 2k plod on our grounds, 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 option available on Haven House grounds - recommended for children under 2 and for wheelchair/pushchair access
  • 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, activity sheet and sweet treats.
  • We'd like you to aim to raise £50 per family in sponsorship. The registration fee only covers the cost of running the event so we do rely on sponsorship to help support our children and families.

On arrival you will find face painting, Bailey's 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!
