Loose Scarecrow Festival 2019 is taking place between September 21 and September 29

What does Olaf from Frozen, members of One Direction and brother and sister Charlie and Lola all have in common?

All have been spotted in Loose village near Maidstone over the last few years - in scarecrow form!


And this month the popular Scarecrow Festival returns, kicking off this Saturday (September 21) and running for the next nine days.

Gardens across the village will be decorated with wild and wonderful scarecrows - with everything from book characters to celebrities set to be depicted alongside more traditional creations.

The event provides a fun activity for all the family as visitors, using a trail sheet, make their way around the village spotting the scarecrows and finding the letters needed to find the answer to the clues.

Trail sheets cost £2 each and are available from Loose Post Office or The Chequers on Old Loose Hill or The Walnut Tree pub in Loose Road.

The festival continues until Sunday, September 29.

On each Sunday afternoon during the festival, between 2pm and 4pm, refreshments will be served at the village Church for visitors taking part in the event.
