All is set for the Great Uphill Scarecrow Festival organised by the Uphill Village Society and taking place over the weekend of 19th and 20th September 2020 and now in its 13th year.
The event will remain a highlight of the village calendar despite the current health crisis and restrictions.
At add cheer and colour in these difficult and strange times this years theme is an open on – “Anything Goes”. A chance let the imagination run wild and create characters of your choice so long as the are fun and happy.
Hopefully the festival will start with the judging of the School entries on the Friday afternoon and if so they will then be displayed in the front of the school for all to see when they tour the village over the weekend. Watch out for more details on this part of the festival as the current restricts may not allow the school to take part but we know they will be with us in spirit.
We hope there will also be the chance to enjoy a cream tea on the Sunday afternoon at St. Nicholas Church with refreshments being served all day on the Saturday at the Methodist Church. But again time will tell so keep looking out for more news as we approach the festal weekend.
Village Society Chair, Stewart Castle said, “Despite the strange times we are current going through I am sure all will be set for another great weekend of fun and spectacle in Uphill. We all need cheering up and what better way to do it than a social distanced tour of the village to see what is certain to be a spectacular and impressive display of scarecrows over the festival weekend.”
