Foxton Scarecrow Festival 2023 – Saturday 7 October (12noon – 5.00pm)

We will be holding our very successful Scarecrow Festival once again this year on Saturday 7 October, so please come along and join us for some scarecrow fun! This year our theme is ‘Films’ – see if you can identify all the various film titles the inventive people of Foxton have come up with!

As in previous years, you’ll be able to wander through Foxton village from one scarecrow to another. Join in with the various fundraising activities along the way, including a children’s quiz and ‘Where’s Wally?’ Will you be able to find this special scarecrow, hidden somewhere in the village? We welcome you to stop at various venues around the village for some refreshments such as bacon butties, home-made soup or tea and cakes.  Local band ‘Impromptu’ will be playing during the afternoon and there will be craft stalls at our ‘Maker’s Market’. You’ll be able to vote for your favourite scarecrow, and this fun event for all ages will finish with prize giving and a performance by Foxton Singers in the village hall.

We’ll be raising funds for our village church, school and pre-school.

Programmes  (price £2) will be available on the day from the Village Hall, the Village Green and the Village Shop, Foxton. For further information, email foxtonscarecrow@gmail.com or find us on Facebook.
