Important change to next years (2020) dates

Next year's early May bank holiday will be moved back by four days for the whole of the UK to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

May Day is traditionally held on a Monday but will be put back to Friday 8 May 2020.

Therefore, the 2020 Urchfont Scarecrow Festival will now be held on Friday the 8th, Saturday the 9th and Sunday 10th May 2020.

VE Day, or Victory in Europe Day, marks the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe.
