Passers-by on the A12 at Little Glemham are being treated to the eye-catching sight of a giant purple tree.
The 65ft oak has been wrapped in 120m of vivid purple material with the quirky addition of four re-cycled bicycles wrapped in bright yellow hanging from its branches – a sure sign FolkEast is fast approaching.
The festival on the Glemham Hall Estate takes place from August 21 to 23 and features a range of activities, including some of the finest musicians of the folk genre.
John Marshall-Potter, from FolkEast thanked FMS Site Services for sponsoring the tree dressing by supplying the cherry picker and to Clothworks of Halesworth for providing the material.
He said: “We want to encourage folk to come and take a peek at the festival this year as there is so much to enjoy. We are delighted that many of those that came last year for a day are returning with friends and family.”
