The 15 official Scarecrow Competition entries are in place around the village for viewing. A Scarecrow Map of all the locations is available for 50p from the Post Office and Parkers.

You can vote for your favourite scarecrow with the official voting slip in the Fair Programme (photocopied voting slips will not be counted). Place it in the voting box in Ditchling Post Office by 4:00pm on Friday 17th June and help choose a winner! 

The numbers on the photos correspond with the Scarecrow vote number, just in case you don't manage to see them all.

First, second and third prize winners will be announced on Fair Day.

About Ditchling Fair

In 1312 King Edward II granted John de Warenne, Lord of the Manor, the right to run a Fair in Ditchling 'in the eve and in the day and in the morrow of St Margaret the Virgin' and thus was to be celebrated on July 20th.
