The decorations from the Tour remain on show to create a carnival atmosphere for visitors and there will be a number of public places open throughout the festival.

Judging takes place on Saturday 23 May and this year’s panel sees many returning judges – they just love coming back each year.

They include Brian Fairfield (Driffield Town Crier), Doug Stewart (BBC Radio Humberside’s gardening expert), DJ Alex Cann (Stray FM and Yorkshire Coast Radio).

The public vote is open throughout the nine days for the visiting public to vote for their favourite scarecrow.

All monies raised during the scarecrow festival are put towards the up-keep of Wetwang Village Hall, which is a registered charity and run by a group of volunteers.

The village hall will be open throughout the festival, providing much-need refreshments, souvenirs, toilet facilities and a raffle.

The parishioners of St Nicholas Church usually put on a great display and the church is well worth a visit during a walk around the festival.
