Pennywell Farm - Jollyween event

Opening Times

Sorry, this event has passed

Pigs, ponies and plenty of pumpkins will be kicking off the October Half Term fun at Pennywell Farm.

There is an action packed day lined up with hundreds of friendly animals to meet, a different hands on activity or show every half hour and four farm rides included in the admission price. We’ll also throw in a pumpkin for you to carve and take home so you can leave all the mess behind!

Joining us for the week are entertainers Mr Phil and Poco Drom, with the welcome the return of Pennywell favourite and gentleman juggler, Matt Pang. A real October Half Term treat! 

Pig racing will be every afternoon at 2.30pm and definitely should not be missed and there is plenty to do undercover. What could be better than snuggling up in our cosy pets area and piggy cuddles barn.

All the Pennywell animals will be here, eagerly awaiting their last cuddles of the 2017 season before we close the doors on Sunday 29th October.

On Thur 26, Fri 27 and Sat 28 October well known potter, Jeremy Leach will be at Pennywell  giving pottery demonstrations and displaying some of his work.

It all adds up to a great day, whatever the weather but even if it rains, don’t panic as we will give you a FREE wet weather return voucher to come and see us again.

Blow away the cobwebs and treat yourself to a full day of Pennywell Fun this half term.

Buy tickets online and there is a FREE Pennywell Pal soft toy with every child ticket purchased.
