Slingsby’s Scarecrow Trail and May Day

The Scarecrow weekend and Slingsby May Day celebrations will be taking place over the weekend of 29th April to 1st May. Friends of Slingsby School (FOSS) warmly welcome entries for the scarecrow trail. There is no set theme, we just ask for a fun, child-friendly entry that families will be able to guess using a clue from the trail. Entries are £2. Please submit the name of your chosen scarecrow along with a clue by Friday the 31st March. To enter or for more information please email [email protected].

The pop-up cafe will be open in the Methodist Chapel across the whole weekend 10am – 4pm, offering refreshments and a selection of children’s pre-loved clothes, toys, books and Slingsby school uniform.  

This year Friends of Slingsby School will be taking on the running of the cafe in the Methodist Chapel on the Monday and we are seeking volunteers and baked items to help us on the day, if you are able to help please email [email protected] for more information.

Scarecrow trail, May Day weekend

Slingsby, 4th-6th May
The Scarecrow Trail is run by the charity Friends of Slingsby School to raise funds for the school. As usual it will be running over the May Day weekend.
Follow the clues with your map on your Scarecrow Trail around the village of Slingsby and find all the different character Scarecrows and vote for your favourite one.  Don’t forget to stop off at our pop up cafe for refreshments and homemade cakes and savouries and view the pre loved childrens stall. 

The weekend culminates on May Day, where you can watch the May pole dancers and enjoy the festival atmosphere with stalls on the village green and local brass band. More on the Mayday Celebrations HERE
