Scarecrow Festival

June 27 - July 18

Battle Festival is a month long, annual arts and music festival running throughout October in Battle, East Sussex. Re-launched in 2014 after several years in hiatus, it now draws visitors from throughout the UK, Western Europe and the US. With performances and exhibitions by internationally acclaimed, award-winning artists, the festival has received immense public and critical acclaim and world-wide attention.

Our patrons are Tim Rice-Oxley of Keane and RSC and TV actor Anton Lesser.

Battle Festival is a registered charity and is managed by a small group of Trustees supported by a steering group made up of members from the local community.

This year, we will be bringing a classic flavour to the Battle Festival Scarecrow Competition to complement the Beautiful Battle Summer Flower Displays! Alongside the colourful creations of the Battle Yarn Bombers, your scarecrows will be contributing towards a festival that showcases the best summer floral displays that Battle has to offer, putting a smile on everyone’s faces!

It is completely FREE to enter the competition and we will be awarding PRIZES to our favourite scarecrow entries.
