Visitors flock to opening weekend of popular Rougham Pumpkins patch, near Bury St Edmunds

Pumpkins galore pulled in the visitors as a popular patch opened its gates near Bury St Edmunds on Saturday.

Rougham Pumpkins is welcoming visitors for the third year and has doubled in size from six to 12 hectares following ‘overwhelming demand’ during the 2022 season.

The field boasts thousands of pumpkins in all shapes and sizes ready to be picked in time for Hallowe’en – with visitors flocking to the site throughout its opening weekend.

As well as colourful pumpkins, the field boasts an array of squashes and gourds, with 20 varieties ready to be picked and loaded into loaned wheelbarrows.

Picnicking is encouraged – with tables available – while Wrights are back with food and a licensed bar and Folk About are serving refreshments and snacks.

Joining the food and drinks line-up on selected dates are What the Peck, Bad Boi Burritos, Steak and Honour, SmokeBox and Chestnut Trailers.

During half-term, young witches and wizards will have the opportunity to carve their pumpkins on site – leaving all the mess behind.

Rougham Pumpkins is just off the A14, with free admission and parking.

Toilets, a giant hay bale pyramid, tractor run, giant sand pits, face painting and photographic opportunities are also available.

The site is open at weekends and then daily from October 20-29, 9am-5pm.
