9 Oct Tavistock Goosey Fair
Tavistock plays host to an annual fair dating back to the 12th Century. Farmers brought their geese for sale, and drove them through the streets to the Market. Although this practice has virtually stopped, it is still possible to obtain goose lunches at the various restaurants and cafes in the town on that day. The fair attracts market traders and showmen from all over the Country. Stalls and side-shows are set up in the centre of the Town, and the adjacent roads are filed with over 200 traders.

  Halloween at The Eden Project
A fortnight of magical activities
Come face to face with a dragon: Look out as you wander around Eden as some legendary beasts will be roaming freely around the gardens. Who – or what – might you encounter?
Browse the Medieval Marketplace: Create a magical animal feed potion, and decorate a lucky amulet charm to take away. Venture into a Petting Zoo with a difference – home to a menagerie of unusual creatures – but be careful as human fingers can make an enticing snack!
Take on a beastly challenge: Dare to step up for a series of challenges (from the gruesome to the slimy) that will uncover the antidote to save an intrepid adventurer – but hurry, time is running out…

Discover myths and legends: Venture on a spooky trail to learn about mythical creatures from around the world, and join the Eden Storytellers for tales and tips on caring for your own creature!
