Scarecrow Festival 2015

The date is set for Nafferton’s second Scarecrow Festival! Organisers are busy making plans for the weekend of June 20th and 21st – and are excited to introduce this years’ theme: ‘Heroes and Villains’.

Last year proved an amazing success with a fantastic number of entries which saw the village come to life – and unearthed some rather brilliant scarecrow building talent! It is hoped the village will once again enter into the spirit of the event this summer and have fun with the Heroes and Villains theme, perhaps taking inspiration from favourite movies, comic books and literature – we may even see tributes to real life and personal heroes too!

We again invite community groups and clubs to get involved by running activities, games or stalls during the festival weekend – it is a great fundraising opportunity – and could be a way of attracting new members too. Activities can be placed around the village and detailed on the scarecrow trail map, all adding to the atmosphere of the event.

Proceeds from the event will be put back into the village ensuring the weekend will not only be a fun event for all involved, but hopefully a beneficial one too.

Any business happy to sponsor the event can place an Ad on the Festival Map, contact Nicola Clarkson-Hall to discuss space and content requirements, space on the map is available from £25-£100, so please get in touch early to avoid disappointment as places are limited!

Should you wish to contact us, please email scarecrow@nafferton.net, call Sophie on 538313 or Nicola on 255471, or of course see us in person on March 5th! Entry forms will shortly be available from Londis and the Post Office and to download from here.

We hope you have fun thinking of ideas for your 2015 Scarecrow – hero or villain, which will yours be?!

On the Sat eve of the Scarecrow festival we will be having a ‘crow down’ with music , food, bouncy castle and kiddies rides at the Rec Club 4 pm to 9 pm. Sat 20th June. We will also be having a children’s Fancy Dress competition in the scarecrow theme of Heroes and Villains.
