Desford Scarecrow Festival 2017 - Desford Leicestershire

Thu 31st August, 2017 @ 1:18pm by leigh984

The Leicestershire village of Desford was invaded by over 100 scarecrows created by residents and groups on the theme of Entertainment.The theme meant that there was a diverse range of creations including Doctor Who`s Cybermen, Minions, Spiderman, characters from The Wizard of Oz (including their very own Yellow Brick Road !). Meanwhile Thunderbirds where Go on one street whilst round the corner scarecrow Guy Martin was working hard on an engine and sipping on a cup of his favorite Yorkshire tea (other brands are available). My film (which took two days to film !) shows just a small selection of the scarecrows on display can you spot the strictly hosts in scarecrow form ?, a scene from hit film La La Land and who knew Elvis was alive and performing in fabulous Las Desford !.The festival is believed to have been given the title of the biggest of its kind in the UK (not bad for its first year !).It is believed that over 5,000 visitors viewed the dozens of scarecrows and the event raised over £5.000! This will be used by Desford in Bloom for its on-going activities.
