Saturday 29th April (from 12 noon) to Monday 1st May. Once again, Friends of Slingsby School have organised the Scarecrow Festival, to adorn the village with a mix of handmade modern and traditional interpretations of the Scarecrow, shown in a variety of forms to amuse and delight.
Scarecrows are displayed around the village and Scarecrow trails are available to buy for £2 from the FoSS ‘pop up’ café in the Methodist Chapel, from Robin Hood Caravan Park or from the Village Shop.
The pop up café will run from 12 noon to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday, serving refreshments and home made cake and savouries, and will run alongside a ‘pre loved’ children’s stall.
As the Scarecrow Festival runs into May Day Monday, its is joined by the traditional May Day festivities which take place on the Green.
