United Kingdom - Urchfont


From: 2016.05.04 To: 2016.05.06



Official website:



The village Urchfont is overrun by scarecrows each May bank holiday weekend. The Scarecrow Festival started in 1997 as an event to raise money for the refurbishment of the village hall and the tradition stuck. Dozens of scarecrows are made and dressed by village locals and displayed along a Scarecrow Trail. Each year sees a new theme such as Book titles, Pairs, People that changed the World, Song Titles, Professions, Films and The Good the Bad and the Ugly. The trail begins at the village pond where you can receive a program plotting the scarecrow displays and clues to the identity of the scarecrow character. Matching the scarecrow to the cryptic clues is all part of the fun. It is a popular family attraction and profit from the event is donated to local charities.
