Prudie’s Perfect Pumpkin Patch!


Castle Howard 2021


The Brief

We were asked by our friends at Castle Howard whether we’d be able to help with something new – the estate had grown a wonderful field of pumpkins – could we help them launch it as a brand new visitor experience for October 2021?


What We Did

We were booked to animate the space on key dates and created the characters of Prudie and Percy. Pumpkin lovers, they were both about the pumpkins they were growing as well as having ideas in abundance for fun with pumpkins. Audiences were hosted at the patch, and could interact for as little or as much as they were comfortable – interactions included having help choosing and carrying, to creating pumpkin music and playing pumpkin quoits and races!


The Result

We delivered successfully over key weekends in October and created a great working relationship with the Garden Centre at Castle Howard whilst helping to launch this new visitor attraction on site.
