From 30 September – 12 November visitors to the Walled Garden at Hillsborough Castle will find autumnal produce guarded by a jolly Scarecrow Parade inspired by characters from literature.
These friendly garden hosts have been specially created by children from local schools and community groups, including Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson by Beechlawn School in Hillsborough, and Mary Poppins by The High School Ballynahinch. Families are invited to spot them all during their journey around the gardens.
Throughout October, autumnal family activities will be taking place each weekend, with plenty for little ones to see and do during their visit.
Young visitors are invited to make a crafty scarecrow hat to join in with the parade in the Walled Garden, learn about hibernating hedgehogs, or step out on an autumn storytelling walk through the grounds, all included in general admission.
