The Screencrows, as they were re-named, had to resemble or represent a film star, character (or characters) of a reasonably well known film to fit in with the theme.

Screencrows built and displayed included Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet in Titanic, the Phantom of the Opera, Rapunzel from Tangled, a Minion from Despicable Me, the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz and Johnny Depp’s Tonto from The Lone Ranger.

The Screencrows had to be homemade; size was unlimited.

There was also an exhibition in the parish hall by Oasby Art Group.
