Scarecrow festival to be held next month

Visitors to the Isle of Wight in the coming weeks might like to check out this year's Gatcombe and Chillerton Scarecrow Festival.

Taking place throughout the villages of Gatcombe and Chillerton from May 25th to June 2nd, the event promises to be great fun for all the family and will be free to head along to.

More than 100 scarecrows of all shapes and guises will be erected throughout the villages by locals, with prizes on offer for the most inventive and impressive designs.

Visitors will be able to view the extensive decoration of the area, as well as enjoy a range of refreshments at the local village hall for just £1.

Meanwhile, fans of classic jazz might like to head along to Bill's Birthday Bash at the Apollo Theatre in Newport on June 23rd.

Performers on the night will include saxophone player Alan Barnes, double bassist Cass Caswell and trumpeter Digby Fairweather.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801583328-ADNFCR
