From Saturday, April 30 to Monday, May 2, families can visit the village and admire Disney-themed creations in people's gardens and homes.

There will be a trail map available, and plenty of opportunities to enjoy food and refreshments.

A festival spokeswoman told the LBO: "I’ve seen some of the entries and this year is going to be another amazing one.

Last year's 80s theme: the winning entry used 'Billy Idol, White Wedding' for inspiration.

"Enjoy a walk around the lovely village of Wingrave and admire the scarecrows throughout the village with this year's theme of Disney. It's a great outdoor activity.”

Maps are £2 and can be purchased from Wingrave shop, Winslow Rd, a few days before or throughout the weekend.

If visitors buy a map/maps then they will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite scarecrows and to enter the prize draw for a £20 Amazon voucher.

The spokeswoman added: "We are very fortunate in Wingrave to have a well stocked shop and a pub, the Rose and Crown, and sports club, Wingrave Park, who will be serving food and refreshments over the bank holiday weekend."
