Halloween 2020 The coronavirus pandemic has wiped out much of the events calendar this year.
But with little over a month to go till Halloween, there are a number of celebrations being planned.
If no further restrictions are brought in by the government, several events will go ahead in October to mark the season.
From family trails to pumpkin festivals, there looks plenty to do.
All events that are listed in this article are, at the time of writing, still going ahead, but these are subject to change depending on government guidance nearer the time.
A number of changes have already been implemented at some of the events to make them Covid-secure, and the organisers are all hopeful that they’ll be able to welcome families and not have to cancel.
Willows Activity Farm Pumpkin Festival
Staff at Willows Activity Farm in St Albans, Hertfordshire, are hopeful that their Halloween pumpkin festival will go ahead this year.
They’re fully prepared and have around 20,000 pumpkins ready for families to come and pick.
It’s been months in the planning – with an incredible 40,000 seeds planted back in May – and the farm’s CEO, Lyssa Elster, says they must press ahead with the mindset that the festival will go ahead.
“Obviously, we’re very aware of what’s happening. The six people rule means we’ve done things such as you can’t book more than six tickets on our website now, which most leisure attractions have done,” she said.
“Even though there are talks of more restrictions coming in, at the moment I haven’t seen anything that would restrict activities outside.”
