The OKH Pumpkin Show is back!!

For centuries the Old Kings Head has held an annual pumpkin show were the community come together to have a fun packed day with competitions, games and charity auction.

Last year we proudly raised over £4,000 for the charity Myeloma UK. Our loveable mascot Percy will soon be visiting the local schools again with packs of pumpkin seeds encouraging the local young people to get green fingered and enter one of the many competitions.

We are now searching for the 2018 charity to benefit from our auction

for an idea of the things you can expect from the day and the competitions have a look at the below
