Various food and drink stalls will be on offer including Acropolis, Poco Loco Mexican, Truly Madly Pizza, Meat Stack Burgers and Deep North Artisan Doughnuts.

Co-founder and director of all of the attractions based at Lintz Hall Farm, Nigel Holliday, said:

“Every year Family Fright Fest sells out so we wanted to add in an additional element which centres around something synonymous with this time of year – pumpkins.

“As Lintz Hall Farm is such a huge area it’s great that we can run Pumpkin Patch in another part of the site, making it easily accessible.

Tickets for the pumpkin patch are priced at £3 with an additional cost for pumpkins. To book tickets or find out more please visit the Family Fright Fest website.
