Scarecrow Festival Weekend at The National Wildflower Centre

Sat 9 & Sun 10 July, 11am – 4pm

FREE ENTRY ALL WEEKEND

The Scarecrows are coming…

Why not join in the fun at The National Wildflower Centre for their 8th Annual Scarecrow Festival Weekend on Sat 9th and Sun 10th July, 11am – 4pm.

Over the last couple of months schools, community groups and families have been designing and creating their very own scarecrows to enter in to the Centre’s Scarecrow Making Competition. All the entries will be displayed around the Centre for you to come and say hello to.

Alison Storer, project officer at the Centre, said: “Sporty Scarecrows is our competition theme this year. We’ve asked participants to take inspiration from all the sport taking place this summer. With the Olympics and Euros happening we thought there’d be lots of ideas to ‘sport up’ your scarecrow! We’re really looking forward to welcoming all the entries.

Over the festival weekend there’ll be lots of FREE hands-on activities and workshops for all the family to enjoy and take part in, including mini scarecrow making, pretty pollinators, fun with the RSPB, Positive Energy Drummers, Grow Wild printing and a quiz trail around the Centre for you to have a go at.

Our friends from Merseycycle, S & R Birds, Artistic Antics, Vonny Bee, Halewood Community Choir, the RSPB, Foster Care Associates, the Friends of Court Hey Park, Lancashire Wildlife Trust, and the British Heart Foundation will be joining us too.

Visit the Centre’s Cornflower Café where they’ll be serving up delicious homemade fayre or why not check out the BBQ serving tasty vegetarian and organic burgers. You’ll also be able to browse around the gift shop and pick up some wonderful wildflower seeds to sow and grow at home.

Come along and enjoy our wildflower displays and have a fun day out. Make sure you take the time to check out our new Healthy Hub area and maybe purchase some organic produce grown at the Centre by the Get Growing volunteers.” 

IT’S FREE ENTRY ALL WEEKEND.

Please note we’ve got limited space in our car park so please use public transport, walk or get on your bike. 

Find us in Court Hey Park, Roby Road, Huyton L16 3NA.

CALLING ALL SCHOOLS & COMMUNITY GROUPS!

It’s not too late to enter our scarecrow making competition.

If you would like to take part in our competition or require more information please email events@landlife.org.uk or call 0151 738 1913.

Entries must be at the Centre by Monday 4th July.

All scarecrows will be showcased over our Scarecrow Festival weekend.
