Scarecrow Trail 2023

The ever-popular Mortimer Scarecrow Trail is back this October Half Term! This year’s theme is Sing-a-Song of Scarecrows. From Children’s Rhymes to Rock’n’Roll, Disney to Bollywood, we want YOU to bring music to Mortimer this Autumn. 🎤🎸🎹

This year’s event runs from Saturday 21 - Sunday 29 October 2023. Spectators are invited to walk around the village daily from 9am until sunset, except the final day when the event ends at 4pm. 

How to get involved?

We are on the lookout for experienced and budding “Scarecrow Inventors” from across the village to enter this year’s event. Think about how you can bring your favourite character or performer to life, or perhaps it’s a line from, or title of, a song that’s sowing the seeds of your creativity. 🌱

Scarecrow Maker entries open 24 July and close in September. Register your characters at:

Get in quick with your idea, as duplicates can’t be accepted.
