Battle Scarecrow Festival

Sunday 27 June to Sunday 18 July 2021

*It is not too late to enter Battle Festival’s Scarecrow Competition!*

The deadline for entries has been extended to Friday 18 June.

You have plenty of time to assemble a friendly (or otherwise) Traditional Scarecrow to protect the numerous flower beds and spaces around Battle Town Centre. He or she would need to be in place by 27th June (until 18th July) and capable of withstanding everything the weather is throwing at us! Then there will be prizes for the scarecrows (one in each of the four categories) who have managed to bewitch our team of judges! For further information, you can email us at

Do join in the fun! There is still time!

Margaret Emeleus and Julie Jessop for Battle Festival’s Scarecrow Competition

This year, we will be bringing a classic flavour to the Battle Festival Scarecrow Competition to complement the Beautiful Battle Summer Flower Displays! Alongside the colourful creations of the Battle Yarn Bombers, your scarecrows will be contributing towards a festival that showcases the best summer floral displays that Battle has to offer, putting a smile on everyone’s faces!

It is completely FREE to enter the competition and we will be awarding PRIZES to our favourite scarecrow entries.
