A bone chilling fact is that 3/4 of children spend more time indoors than prison inmates. This is detrimental to their physical and mental wellbeing; we don't want to raise a generation of Vampires!
Yet, there is a simple solution, heading outdoors for as little as 20 minutes three times a week improves mental health for all young and old Witches and Warlocks alike.
We have created the Halloween Food Fright Festival - perfect for all your little ghouls this Half Term.
Inject some structure and fun into this Halloween Half Term. Get your ghouls to put down their screens and explore nature. Make autumnal family memories; from our slime tastic workshop to our spookalicious challenges, helping you build up to your Fright Night Feast this Halloween.
This Halloween Festival is a great way to encourage you all to have fun in your local environment. You will gain magical knowledge and understanding through exploration and play!
This is great for mini monsters from 2 - 12. Get them out there adventuring and cooking simple bite size things; from Fortune Telling Pumpkin Bread to Zombie Fingers.
The whole festival takes places online - join in from across the whole of the UK and Ireland or even the USA.
"Imogen and Duncan aren't your average foragers and chefs. They are funny, make it real and I feel part of their family. They make me feel human as they don't pretend to be perfect. We love their challenges and make so many memories. Our only regret is not finding them sooner "

“Thank you so much, we’ve had the most amazing time at the Festival, the videos have made us so happy too. We’ve had a few unplanned foraging moments, where we’ve emptied our water bottles on our bike rides to fill it with foraging delights. We’ve enjoyed the cordial, rosehip custard with some blackberry crumble, plus this morning we made the most delicious elderberry, blackberry basil yoghurt but swapped the toast for pancakes! Thank you again from the covey of Partridges - we also found some shark teeth fossils this week.”
A Trio of Tinklers and the Amazing Alicia bring the Halloween Festival to you. Duncan, Imogen and Xanthe Tinker are a family of foragers with two best selling Foraging Fairytales books. They can often be heard as experts on BBC Radio or working in their local community.
Duncan is a foraging chef who creates menus that blow people away. He has a keen knowledge of science and story, bringing it all to life and engaging children.
Imogen asks the questions we often feel too silly or scared to ask.She has had a passion for the outdoors and storytelling since childhood.
Alicia is a passionate sustainability expert who brings the outdoors to life. She has co-authored two best selling books with the Tinklers.
Xanthe is three - who knows what she will ask or say but always entertains us! You will often her find her out foraging in her favourite costume - fox pirate.
Oh and don't forget Spartacas, their 17 year old rescue dog who will be joining them on their spooky video forgaing treasure hunts.
" My only regret is not doing this sooner! I thought I didn't have the time but it was so easy to become part of and I went on to join their membership group the Kitchen Table Revolution.”
