The Legend of Spookley The Square Pumpkin

At Arboretum we are delighted to host a week of Spookley family fun from the 25th-31st of October that will feature endless exciting activities for Halloween such as; story-telling, a movie room and delicious in store Halloween treats!


We have teamed up with the Spookley the Square Pumpkin Programme which is a programme designed to raise awareness for bullying prevention. Spookley was first introduced to millions of children in the United States in the book The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin, in which he is shunned by all of the round pumpkins until a mighty storm threatens to destroy the entire pumpkin patch and only Spookley, with his unique shape, can save the day. Spookley is the number 1 anti-bullying campaign in the USA and is set to take the UK & Ireland by storm.
