Crowning glory at Tatton Park’s scarecrow festival this half term

Shares

 

Tatton Park’s annual scarecrow festival is back this February half term holiday – and it’s set to be a right royal romp!

This year’s scarecrow festival will showcase a mixture of famous faces and colourful characters – all made from straw – inspired by His Majesty The King’s forthcoming coronation.

The team at Tatton Park has come up with a series of regal representations to delight visitors, and they can all be found around the gardens and farm.

 

 

The scarecrow festival runs throughout half term (except Mondays) from Saturday 11th February until Sunday 26th February.

Visitors will be able to look out for ‘Queen of the Jungle’ Jill Scott, ‘King of Rock and Roll’ Elvis Presley, the nation’s favourite royal bear Paddington, as well as The Lion King and others.

Tatton Park’s education team, along with garden and farm volunteers, have worked hard to build over 50 scarecrows from scratch this year.

The annual scarecrow festival usually sees straw and clothing recycled from the previous year, but sadly last year’s scarecrows were ruined by a double whammy of severe storms – Storm Eunice and Storm Dudley.

 

 

Simon Tetlow, Tatton’s head gardener, said: “It’s been a real team effort this year to bring these royal characters to life.

“Starting again was a daunting task but we know that the annual scarecrow festival is a big hit for families at half term.

“It’s a chance to get the kids outdoors, for some fresh air and fun.”

Parkland entry and tickets for the gardens and farm can be booked online or on the gate on the day of your visit.

Tatton Park is managed and financed by Cheshire East Council on behalf of the National Trust.
