Shirley Scarecrow Festival 2021

The Shirley Scarecrow Festival is back for a second year!

This year the theme is ‘Films’. See if you can guess which movies and film stars you can spot on your walk. Last year we raised an amazing £3419!

Our local community have kindly been building Scarecrows and making scenes for everyone to enjoy.

This year we have some fabulous prizes donated and even a raffle. Tickets will be on sale from 60, Bennett’s Way on Saturday and Sunday. A collection will also be at 60, Bennett’s Way if you’d like to donate to Demelza. You can also donate on the just giving page. Please give generously and show your appreciation to our fabulous neighbours for building the Scarecrows.

Have fun at the festival and take lots of pictures!
