Visit the Walled Garden at Hillsborough Castle during October to see a gathering of scarecrows made by local schools and community groups in partnership with local artists. With so many famous faces from history guarding the crops - the castle is expecting a bumper harvest this year! Who will you spot?
The display will be accompanied by a series of family activities on Saturdays in October, including family foraging walks (2 October), straw craft workshops (9 October), storytelling walks (16 October), lantern making workshops (23 October) and the chance to make a mini scarecrow (30 October).
For the safety, health and comfort of our visitors, staff and volunteers, we continue to operate with many of our COVID-19 safety measures in place, including managing visitor numbers so our sites remain safe places to visit. To guarantee entry we ask members and visitors to pre-book tickets and timed entry slots in advance. We will also welcome walk-ups wherever possible. We expect and recommend that face masks are worn in indoor spaces and that visitors continue to maintain a respectful distance from staff and other visitors not in their group.
