Turnip Carving at Blenheim Palace

10 October, 2020 - 11 October, 2020

turnip carving, halloween turnip tradition

Learn about the history of pumpkins and turnip carving, before decorating your very own terrifying turnip at Blenheim Palace this weekend or taking one to carve at home.

All day in the Pleasure Gardens for a small charge.

Legend says that glowing coal would be placed in a carved turnip or potato to scare away evil spirits.

If that’s getting you in the mood for all this Halloween, they also have great activities for October half term or the Red Kite Days guide has a bumper list of what’s on for kids at half term in Oxfordshire.
