Heather Village Coalville LE67 2QJ Leicestershire
Once a year, for the past 20 years, the good people of Heather have gone ever so slightly insane. Throughout the village the gardens are dotted with scarecrows. Scores and Scores of them, some of celebs, some of them topical, many of them cheerfully daft, and all competing for the votes of the people who come for miles around to see them. This hugely popular event celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and the villagers plan to make it extra special. It will take place in the Village of Heather in the heart of the National Forest from 11 am on Sunday 29h July until 6pm on Sunday 5th August. There will be ample free parking at Heather St John's Football Club (LE67 2QJ). Admission is free and guides are available for £2 to help visitors find all the Scarecrows and vote for their favourite. More details can be found on their website heatherscarecrowfestival.com. You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.
