From 18th July to 6th September, the market town of Eye in Suffolk will be home to a flock of 24 very unusual sheep, decorated by local businesses and community groups. These sheep celebrate Eye’s historic connection with the wool trade and have been installed by The Blossom Charity, who are based in the town, to share a bit of summertime fun with the local community and raise awareness of what they do.
Imaginative Traveller is excited to be part of the Sheep Art Trail. We have sponsored and decorated a ram which showcases our love of travel, adventure and diversity. Our sculpture, Ramesh, will be on display in Eye alongside many others. To follow the sheep art trail, pick up a map from a number of locations in the town (including Dream on, the Library, Homestart, East of England and Central England Co ops) or visit the sheep trail website.
The Charity Sheep Auction
On 12th September The Blossom Charity will host an auction of art, to sell each of the sheep from the art trail to raise money for the charity.
This event, sponsored by Imaginative Traveller, is to be held at 7pm, at Kenton Hall in Suffolk. The auction promises to be a fun and interesting event, with a chance to meet some of the sponsors and artists at a drinks reception before the serious business of selling of the unique sheep art to the highest bidder! Anyone interested in acquiring a beautifully painted sheep as a piece of art for their business, their home or garden, or just as a talking point, are very welcome to attend and sealed or telephone bids will be accepted. The sheep to be auctioned can be viewed at www.eyesheeparttrail.co.uk and this website includes details of how you can buy a ticket to attend the charity auction.
