With Halloween approaching, Cammas Hall is getting ready for the spooky season with its eighth annual pumpkin patch.

Cammas Hall, which is just outside Hatfield Broad Oak, has a pick-your-own farm, farm shop, tea barn and maize maze.

The Halloween pumpkin patch will be open from Saturday, September 30 to Sunday, October 29, and will be closed on Mondays apart from October 23.

This year the 'Wicked Walkways' are back to chill and thrill visitors. The first is family-friendly and full of haunting props and surprises, while the second - Terror Tunnel - is for ages 13+ only, with plenty of interaction with Halloween characters along the way.

Once visitors make it out of the Wicked Walkways, they will emerge into Cammas Hall's biggest-ever pumpkin patch, with more than 60 varieties of pumpkin and squash to choose from.

Visitors can return after dark for the Cammas Hall Resurrected Nights, which run on set dates during the last three weeks of October.

Kicking off on Friday, October 13 with an Elvis tribute act, performances include a Michael Jackson tribute on Saturday, October 14, a Freddie Mercury tribute on Thursday, October 19, a David Bowie tribute on Friday, October 20, a Tina Turner tribute on Thursday, October 26 and a Whitney Houston tribute on Friday, October 27.

Band performances include sets from Recharged on Saturday, October 21 and The Time Warps on Saturday, October 29.

On each night there will be two sets between 6.45pm and 8.30pm.

The Maize Maze will be open both day and night, weather permitting, with two new Halloween games to play in the mini-maze and main maze.

One entrance fee covers both mazes, and there will be a small reward for everyone who finds the exit, as well as an opportunity to be entered into a prize draw.

Meanwhile the 45-minute Monster Mayhem show will run every weekend and during half term, with puppetry, songs and silliness. 


The Tea Barn will be open from 9am to 4pm, and the Cammas Cavern will be open on busier days and at night-time events.

Visitors can enjoy seasonal treats such as mulled cider, pumpkin lattes, hot chocolate and the Cammas cold dog.

Cammas Hall has teamed up with New River brewery in Hoddesdon to produce a spiced ale made from the farm's own roasted pumpkins. The 'Pump King Ale' is available to enjoy on-site or take home.

Children will be able to purchase a range of Halloween crafts, and the farm shop will be stocked with carving kits, spooky decorations and toffee apples.

Dogs are welcome in the outside dining area, the Maize Maze and on the nature trail, but will not be permitted in the Halloween experience, pumpkin patch or indoor areas.

Pre-booking is essential, and entrance to the Halloween experience and pumpkin patch costs £4-6, depending on the time and date.

Entrance to Cammas Hall Resurrected is £9 for adults and £7 for children. Tickets for the Maize Maze can be purchased on site.
