12th to 18th August
and celebrating Queen Victoria and Prince Albert
200th birthdays and our very own pier being 150,
we would like to celebrate
any other BIG birthdays in Saltburn -
let us know any other club, association
or person who is making it big this year…..
Our scarecrow festival runs from 12th-18th August
and we would like as many scarecrows as possible
throughout the town, you are welcome to do any specific
Victorian or just a general person or scene -
we leave it to your imagination!! Maybe research and see
who lived during Victorian times in your house/shop
or the building or land where your house/shop is built now.
You do not need any planning permission but please be safe
(no scarecrows blocking pavements and must be safe if up high)
and they are your responsibility. We advise they are brought in at night to prevent vandalism.
If you live in an area that is a little out of the main route through Saltburn and may not be on a walkable trail – and still want to make a scarecrow – do not despair – there are plenty of areas such as the top prom and the valley gardens that need a scarecrow or two and may need you… (they will have a sign on with your name if you wish too) Check with us where spaces need to be filled…
During the week of the 12th-18th there will be a trail to encourage people to look at all the scarecrows and answer questions. This will be a £1 a go for the trail (this also include 1 x raffle ticket)
The winner of this will be drawn at a Mad Hatters Tea Party – Everyone Is Invited - at the Community Centre 12-4 with Tombola, games, entertainment etc on Sunday 18th August. All monies raised to the Saltburn Christmas Lights.
We have a drop in at Toc H, off Albion Terrace every
Monday from 1.30-3 for ideas about materials
and building scarecrows etc if you want to come along - ….
Our local recycling company GREENOLOGY are donating plastic materials to help anyone who needs it to make their scarecrow – just let us know if you need materials..
We are here to help with any queries or scarecrow building you might get stuck with
Any questions about anything please ask ...
We are on instagram and Facebook with pictures and this will keep being updated as we build more and more– visit saltburnscarecrows or email us with queries or to register at
