The much loved event is now in its ninth year and is set to attract hundreds of people to the town during the half-term school holidays.

Last year more than 70 scarecrows were displayed by local businesses down the Thoroughfare, around Market Place and down to Angel Link.

Organiser Karen Prime hopes this year’s event will be “bigger and better” than ever before and added: “It’s a must do event for October half-term.”

As with previous festivals there will be a Treasure Trail for children - with shops and business around the town centre hiding letters in windows which make up the names of famous films.
