Event Details

Scarecrow Weekend with Birdswood

The Herb Deli have confirmed they will be there and so have some local farmers who use windfall logs to create stunning fairy houses.

Come and celebrate the summer holidays with the Birdswood crew and our annual Scarecrow Festival!

Held on Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th August 10am-5pm, join us with our stellar range of activities and stalls, suitable for those both young and young at heart.

Supplied by the Friends of Cromford Canal for this weekend, visitors are treated to a glimpse into the past with a historic slideshow depicting scenes from years gone by.

Settle down quayside and admire a display of model boats brought to us by local enthusiasts as they cruise along the water.

Explore our many stalls including an expanded collection of locally produced pieces of art as sold regularly in our Canal Shop by Trina’s Canal Art.

Alyson’s Book Folds, based on the new art craze sweeping the nation, where customers can buy ready made items and children and adults can take part in a hedgehog workshop where you can learn to make your own.

These and more, along with a selection of fresh produce available for purchase that would go great with items bought alongside those sold at our own Hartington Cheese Shop.

And of course we will be running the horse drawn canal boat trips which can be booked in advance HERE :

After a fun-filled day, visitors are encouraged to relax next to our idyllic canal scenery, with local wildlife in sights and a refreshing beverage in hand, available at the nearby Wheatcroft’s Café this makes the perfect wind down to a great day out.

The fun doesn’t end with us though, directly across the road at Cromford Mills there are even more activities for the weekend.

We look forward to seeing you there!
