2018 Festival Competitions

The Scarecrows are returning!

The standard of the scarecrow competition in 2017 was very high so it is hoped that the 2018 Disney theme will encourage the same level of creativity once again. You’ll be able to see the scarecrows from 25th June before the Festival and they’ll be taken to the Festival Field on the 6th July for the Festival weekend.

Need inspiration?

Disney has created many much-loved animated characters Mickey and Minnie Mouse and Snow White, The Little Mermaid, Finding Nemo, and Beauty and the Beast. There’s plenty of other inspiration from classics such as The Jungle Book, Lion King, right up to Frozen and Moana.

Here are more Disney characters to get you started.

Last year’s competition was Harry Potter with the public vote choosing a large and characterful Hagrid, created by the Mind Charity shop. The best dressed window display was awarded to Maddock Funeral Directors, London Road.
