2011 Event

In 2011, the first year of the festival, the community of Bothwell embraced the concept wholeheartedly; making and displaying more than 300 wonderfully creative scarecrows in the run up to the festival; as well as showing a real enthusiasm for all the concerts, events, and exhibitions that were organised. Surplus funds from the festival were donated to Yorkhill Children’s Foundation, to help them continue the phenomenal work they do.

The festival was widely acclaimed as the most successful community event ever seen in Bothwell. Here, you can read people’s comments and view photographs of last year’s festival.
