Please visit the Scarecrows and Art work which is currently being displayed on The Greenway, National Grid Wood and Red Lane.  This has all been done by local residents and local children and is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face! It will all be displayed until 10th July.

This weekend the village hall will also be open for lunch and light refreshments, tea, coffee cakes, etc. Saturday 12-5pm, Sunday 10-5pm.

At the hall you can pick up a Scarecrow voting form as well as meet with local craft artists which include machine embroidery demos by a local textile artist, wood work demonstration and locally made glasswork.

If anyone is unable to do the walk then there will be a slide show to watch on a laptop at the hall.

Finally, don’t forget your wellies or sensible shoes as it is still a little muddy in the woods!



This year’s event will incorporate an exhibition, a scarecrow competition and a sculpture trail on the theme of “Larger than Life”, and visitors can enjoy them all with a short circular walk taking in the Kenilworth Greenway and the National Grid Wood.  Local community groups, nurseries and the school have also contributed to this community project so come and see what we’ve been up to in the woods - younger visitors will particularly enjoy our Peter Rabbit and Hungry Caterpillar exhibits!

The exhibition at the Village Hall will feature photography, painting, ceramics, jewellery and textiles, with craft demonstrations and opportunities to purchase works and to talk to the artists.  Opening times are 12pm to 5pm on Saturday 25th, and 10am to 5pm on Sunday 26th June.  Refreshments, light lunches and home-baked cakes will be available, and the Village Choir led by Seb Farrall will be performing at 4pm on Sunday 26th.

The scarecrow competition will be held during the weekend, and visitors to the Made in Burton Green events will be encouraged to vote for their favourite scarecrow, with the winner announced on the Sunday afternoon.  The scarecrows will be exhibited along the Greenway at Burton Green and maps of their locations will be available for visitors.  The winner will be announced at 4.30 on Sunday 26th at the village hall.
