The 12th Uphill Scarecrow Festival
21/22 September 2019
All went well for the Great Uphill Scarecrow Festival organised by the Uphill Village Society that took place over the weekend of 21st and 22nd September 2010 and this year in its 12th year.
The event was as always a highlight of the village calendar and residents were busy building their scarecrow for display based this year on the theme of “TALE TALES”. A display of characters from Fables, Fantasies or Fairy Tales. From Disney to Harry Potter. From Aesop’s Fables to Tolkien’s Hobbits!
The festival started with the judging of the School entries on the Friday afternoon by the Town mayor and which were then be displayed in the front of the school for all to see when they tour the village over the weekend when there was 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.
