The annual 9 day Wetwang Scarecrow Festival runs from Saturday 27th May until Sunday 4th June 2017. Entry forms are available to download here or pop into the Village Hall to collect one. If you want a form emailing to you drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be sent back to you.
Once again we are accepting “Visiting “ Scarecrows from surrounding towns and villages who wanted to get in on the Scarecrow Action! We love to encourage “Visiting” entries to stand alongside all the Village entries. Let’s have Wetwang bursting at the seams with Scarecrows – rest assured they will be given a good home during the festival!
This years Theme:
There are two categories this year: ”Comic Book Characters” and “Other”. The latter gives the creative mind free rein to build any scarecrow they like! There will be a cash prize for the winner in each of the categories and classes and also a cash prize for the winner of the Public Vote.
Foster a Scarecrow:
Back again for 2017 is “Foster a Scarecrow”. If you can’t make your own Scarecrow but would like to “Foster” one for the 9 days and have it in your garden – then call 236572 and leave us a mesage. We will build and dress a Scarecrow for you and for a donation we’ll come and pop it in your garden.
The Village Hall will be open daily form 10am to 4pm for the Scarecrow Cafe, Tombola, Scarecrow Trail Maps, Games, Scarecrow Goodies, Grand prize Draw and much, much more. The Hall is located on Southfield Road YO25 9XX.
