STRAW stuffed versions of the greatest heroes and villains of the silver screen will be on display at this year’s Belbroughton Scarecrow Festival.

The popular event, which is now in its 18th year, will take place on September 27 and 28.

Thousands of visitors are expected to attend the festival, which raises money for local good causes.

Scarecrow committee chairman, Ian Pemberton, said: "The quality that we have just gets better year on year. The people of Belbroughton really have a talent and skill for interpreting the theme in an artistic and amusing way."
