The owners of a glamping site in north Suffolk are branching out this summer by helping to stage a new festival.

Ivy Grange Farm, which runs yurt holidays in Westhall, has teamed up with nearby Ringsfield Hall EcoActivity Centre to organise mini-festival Roots and Branches.

Taking place from Friday June 15 to Sunday June 17, it will feature talks, workshops and events focused on celebrating and encouraging positive change in local communities.

Kim Hoare, who runs Ivy Grange Farm with husband Nick, said: “All the participants have been chosen because they are great examples of people who have really made a difference within their community, whether that’s as a socially conscious business or a community project, and we’re delighted to have such a strong team on board.”
