Raising money for Marie Curie Cancer Care, Scarecrows will be popping up all around Ben Rhydding again! Trail sheets and maps will be available from the Wheatley Arms for £2. We will also be providing an opportunity for children to create their own scarecrows in the first week of the festival (Half Term week). The theme of this year’s Scarecrows is TV shows.

There is still time to get involved with the Scarecrow Trail as well! If you are living in Ben Rhydding and would like to produce a Scarecrow to be part of the trail, Please contact either: Claire Macina – 07951 535881 e-mail: or  Adrian Long – 07889860049 e-mail:

Scarecrows should be in place by Sunday 27th May, and will be on display at the end of the festival Saturday 16th June at the Ben Rhydding Fete!
