Eye Art Trail - The Way Ahead, 2021

Now in its third year, the art sculpture trail in Eye, Suffolk, features 26 large, beautifully decorated, tortoises and hares and 16 minis. Visitors can walk with purpose to see the drove of hares and creep of tortoises in locations on a route around the town.

The trail is designed to represent The Way Ahead as we navigate our way out of the pandemic and it is thought-provoking to see the different local artists' individual interpretations.

The sculptures will race to The Oaksmere, Eye where they will be sold at auction on Thursday 16th September 2021, raising money for the blossom charity enabling them to continue providing programmes so that men and women can make long lasting changes in their lives.

The Charity Auction - 16th September 2021

On Thursday 16th September the blossom charity will host an auction to sell each of the tortoises and hares to raise money for the charity. This event will be held at 7pm, at The Oaksmere, Rectory Road, Brome, Eye, Suffolk. The auction, hosted by Clarke & Simpson, 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 the unique sculpture art to the highest bidders! Anyone interested in acquiring a beautifully painted tortoises or hare for their business, their home or garden, or just as a talking point are very welcome to attend. Tickets are £15 per person and include food and fizz. If you would like to buy a ticket to attend the charity auction please email info@theblossomcharity.co.uk or call us on 01379 678483. If you are unable to attend the auction in person but are interested in bidding you can still do so by either bidding online or by completing this commission bid form and returning it to us.
