The team behind the venture are hopeful hundreds of people will support the event.

Hannah Bloom, who manages the EACH fundraising team, said: “It’s just something completely different. It looks fantastic and it will be great with people covered in paint.”

The event will cost £20 for adults and £10 for children. The funds raised will go to the Treehouse.
