Scarecrow Weekend 12th & 13th September 2015

Lubenham holds an annual Scarecrow weekend, many householders make Scarecrows and place them in their gardens or on their houses, there is a competition for the best Scarecrow. During the weekend there are many events taking place, stalls on the Village Green, music and entertainment on the Green, a barbeque, vintage car and vehicle displays and tractor rides around the village. It's a great event that everyone joins in.

The event last year was a brilliant success, with a record number of visitors to the village. This year's event looks set to be better than ever with two fields in the village now available as we'd outgrown the Green.
The main attraction has to be the many scarecrows which will be on show all around the village.
On the Village Green we will have a huge array of stalls, from traditional village games to craft & local produce for sale. Market Harborough Gymnastics & Trampoline Club will be back displaying their talents and will be joined by Cuthberts' Baton Twirlers and many live musicians throughout the weekend.

This year sees the village Home Produce & Garden Show getting bigger and better with more entrants competing for the winning rosettes! Whilst on the West Field we take on a more rural theme with gun dog scurries, pony rides and huskie dogs. Along with the ever popular vintage vehicle and classic car display.
Refreshments can be found on The Green, at All Saints Church, The Coach & Horses Pub and the Village Hall.

As with all our scarecrow events, all the money raised over the weekend will be donated to local groups and organisations.

Dog Show Classes

Scarecrows come in a variety of guises, some telling a story others with animation, while some look remarkably like their owners. The speed camera policeman scarecrow did an excellent job of slowing down the traffic on the Main Road and the schoolboy soaked passers by when they were not looking.
