The Bwbach Festival
Enjoy another bewitching, mischievous, and simply marvellous Bwbach Festival.
From 1st September to 5th November 2023, Bluestone's larger-than-life scarecrows return - The Bwbach!
Our scarecrows and scientists are hard at work concocting great plans for next year's festival! Check out all the spooks, experiments, and general mischief we've got in store for you!
Spooky Science WorkshopGet hands-on with some spooktacular science experiments from the Pumpkin Lab show! Led by Igor, put on your lab coats and safety goggles and get ready to have your mind blown... not literally, we’ll use pumpkins for that! It's science - the fun way!
Scarecrow Hunt!Be it buggy, bike, or puddle splashers grab your sense of adventure and head out on a quest.
Track down the Scarecrow’s locations and fill in the details you discover. Once you’ve found them all you can enjoy the mini Bwbach battle game, using their top trumps scores, who will win?
Pumpkin Carving ContestBrush up on your pumpkin carving skills and enter your own Bwbach inspired creation into our contest.
The judging will take place in the Village by none other than the Scientific Scarecrow- accompanied by Igor and the Kabooms, who will be playing live music as the pumpkin contest takes place!
Birdbox WorkshopEveryone needs a warm and cosy place to sleep at night especially as the autumn nights draw in and now you can provide a home for our feathered friends with the Bwbach workshop.
Led by the loveable scarecrow and his Free Ranger friend, you'll be treated to a heart-warming story, as you craft a beautiful bird box!
The Serendome is brought to life with the Bwbach Harvest Party. With seasonal decorations, pop-up activities and seasonal delights, from pumpkin pie to spiced lattes!
There'll be live music throughout the day, including performances from the one and only Igor and the Ka-Booms as well as fun festival games for the whole family to energy, and circus skills and entertainment by our Bwbach performers - including fire spinners!
