Friday 26th October – Chislehurst High St – 1pm til 3.30pm

Come out, come out… for a ghoulish adventure this October half term!

Children will discover the lovely surroundings of our town whilst collecting treats from our High Street shops and businesses. And for the first time, this year’s Hunt will feature our businesses on Belmont Parade including Deva Yoga, Jspa, Chislehurst Kitchens and Flawless Jewellery.

Children will be given their own Pumpkin Passport to get stamped and will receive treats at stops along the route. Dress up in your most original Halloween costumes for the chance to win a fantastic family prize. Individual fancy dress winners from each of Demelza Hospice Care for Children’s Pumpkin Hunt locations will be entered into the Grand Pumpkin fancy dress costume competition for the chance to win a Merlin Family Pass worth up to £1,000!

For the second year, this event will be in aid of your local charity, Demelza Hospice Care for Children.
