23rd & 24th SEPTEMBER
We believe ours is the biggest Scarecrow Festival in the UK and it's certainly the best!


All scarecrows wishing to enter the competition should register with us as soon as possible - but must register by no later than 10am on Saturday 23rd September. Scarecrows from outside of the parish will need to register by 5pm on the Saturday before the festival so that we can get in touch with them to arrange a place to be displayed. Our competition rules are available below.

Prizes will be awarded as follows:

Best Scarecrow: £200 and a three course meal for two at The Horseshoes
Most original scarecrow: £100 and a £100 voucher to spend at The Talbot
Best interpretation of theme: £100 and a three course meal for two at the Robin Hood in Drayton
Prize for technical/creative merit: £100 and a £50 voucher for the Bell and Cross in Clent
Best pun (scarecrow name): £50 and a £50 voucher to spend at Belbroughton Club
Best guest scarecrow (from outside village): £100 and afternoon tea for four at The Deli
