See the pumpkins float on the mill pond at dusk in this magical Halloween event.

We welcome you all to the Pumpkin Flotilla where the mill has been visited by the ghostly Ferryman who guards the unearthly millpond.

Bring in your own uniquely decorated pumpkin from home and watch it glide across the millpond in this spooktactular evening event.

Whilst you await your turn to view the flotilla, enjoy a delicious hot chocolate and spooky stories. You will even get the chance to make a lantern to guide you through the mill pond.

Why not pre-order a bowl of Vampire’s Delight soup and a bread roll to enjoy before you view the flotilla? Our vampires delight soup is Tomato and Red Pepper and costs an additional £4.50 per person. Please advise us if you have any allergies or dietary requirements: events@birminghammuseums.org.uk

Your pumpkin flotilla experience will last 90 mins.

A ticket to the flotilla is £45 and admits up to 5 people (adults and children) and includes one hot chocolate per person.

One pumpkin can be brought to the flotilla per ticket! Pumpkins must be no larger than medium sized and weigh no more than 3.5 kg in order to fit on the flotilla.

The Ferryman will be waiting for you………

Sarehole Mill will feel a little different to usual, but we are sure you will enjoy your visit and we look forward to welcoming you. This event will be a lovely opportunity to visit the mill yard and mill pool but some parts of the mill will be closed. The shop and tearoom will be open. Staff on site will be wearing PPE or working behind Perspex screens and we have enhanced cleaning schedules in place. Card payments are preferred.

This is an outdoor event and some of the Courtyard flooring may be slippery. Please wear sensible footwear and wrap up warm.

Birmingham Museums Trust is a registered charity and money raised through events like this help us care for beautiful buildings like Sarehole Mill. We thank you for your support and kindness.
