Litfest Scarecrow Competition

Welcome to the first Litfest Scarecrow Competition! Members of the Lancaster & District   community are invited to create a scarecrow in the form of a character from literature. The character can be from any book, from Harry Potter to Sherlock Holmes, Dorothy Gale to the Gruffalo. Simply create your scarecrow and place it somewhere that can be seen from the road. Whether that is in your front window, your front garden or even the roof!

Download a copy of our competition sign here –  Scarecrow competition entry – to be put in the window of your house. Then send us an email to or post a letter to Litfest, The Storey, Meeting House Lane, Lancaster, LA1 1TH. Please include your name, your address, the character your scarecrow represents, what book the character is from and where the scarecrow is displayed.

Our judges will tour the lanes of the Lancaster District in search of your scarecrows, before awarding the winner with a grand prize!
