Belbroughton is a small English village in the middle of the UK with a population of about 2000 people.
While very scenic, it does not have many places of interest for a tourist. But almost 40000 people visit Belbroughton every year for a very special event.
Belbroughton hosts the annual scarecrow festival every year in October since 1996. Each year they choose a theme for the scarecrows and have a competition to decide which scarecrow is the best. Last year's winner was this one called "Straw of the Worlds" which is based on "War of the Worlds".
This year's theme was fables and fairy tales which are traditional stories told for many generations. Most of them are quite famous around the world including Japan.
