Bothwell Scarecrow Festival

In the autumn of 2010, Brighter Bothwell, a local organisation committed to enhancing and improving the environment, took the initiative to support a new idea designed to extend and develop the feeling of community in Bothwell. The new initiative was to organise a scarecrow festival, inspired by a number of wonderful festivals already held in villages across the UK. A new group was formed to set up a Community Scarecrow Festival with an agreed purpose: to promote community spirit among residents, community groups and businesses; to improve well being; and to support the local economy. This organisation has developed into The Bothwell Community Scarecrow Festival. The first festival took place in September 2011 and was a resounding success. By popular demand this much talked-about and eagerly anticipated festival will be repeated in 2012 & 2013, from Wednesday September 11 to Sunday September 15 with the surplus funds once again being donated to Yorkhill Children’s Foundation. We very much look forward to seeing you there.
