Scarecrow competition 

For the last five years we have held a scarecrow competition over the festival weekend.

Villagers design and create imaginative, comical and clever scarecrows for the trail around the village. 

Inside each festival programme will be a voting slip for visitors to choose their favourite scarecrows and completed voting slips can be posted in voting boxes outside the village shop and village hall.

Judging will be by a public vote made by all visitors to the village throughout the weekend. This is a great way to be involved with MarchingtonVillage Festival.


Scarecrows must be placed outside your property by 8.30 am on Saturday 22ndJune in order to receive your number for voting.

And the prizes for the most popular scarecrow are kindly donated by Chloe May Beauty

Childern particularly love this event along with the bug hunt ....
