Punkie Night returns to Long Sutton
The Rotary Club of Langport & Somerton is hosting a Charity Halloween Bonfire Party on Friday 27th October from 6.30pm at Orchardleigh, Martock Road, Long Sutton, TA10 9HU by kind permission of Angie & Rupert Cox.
Plenty of Halloween fun & games around the bonfire including prizes for best Halloween fancy dress and best decorated pumpkin — or similar vegetable.
Entry includes a hot dog and a drink for everyone — including the very best of Harry's Mulled Cider and apple juices made in Long Sutton. Additional refreshments will be available for purchase.
Tickets are priced at only £5 each, but under 11's go absolutely FREE.
To order your tickets for this excellent family fun night out contact Rupert Cox on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01458 241616
All proceeds will go to a range of local youth causes that the Rotary Club is supporting this year, and don't worry if the weather is a little inclement, as there will be a marquee for shelter and car parking close by
Punkie Night is a Westcountry custom practised on the last Thursday of October related to Halloween in Somerset in England. Children will march around with a jack o'lantern, singing a song which goes :
"It's Punkie Night tonight It's Punkie Night tonight Adam and Eve would not believe It's Punkie Night tonight"
There are some variants of this old rhyme which also include these lines:
"Give me a candle, give me a light If you don't, you'll get a fright"
"Give me a candle give me light If you haven't a candle, a penny's all right"
