The Cambridge Pumpkin Festival returns for a third year! Following on from the great successes of the last two years, this year promises to comprise an exciting variety of events for all the family over the October half term, encouraging us all to think more about the tricky issue of food waste. We will be hosting a ‘Feed the 1000’ launch event, Disco Soup, and a Pop-up Farmer’s Market, amongst many more! In addition a range of of restaurants and cafés across the city will be putting on seasonal pumpkin-based menu specials in celebration of all that is autumnal.
