IF YOU see lights blazing over Sutton Hoo it is not UFO on its way to Rendlesham.
Instead it will be a special maze by torchlight evening to raise money for a cancer education and information centre at Ipswich Hospital.
The maize maze in the shape of the famous Sutton Hoo helmet was opened last month.
Now a special evening event is being organised for adults to see if they can find their way through the two miles of pathways – in the dark.
Glow stick torches will be on hand to guide people through the ten acres of maze that have been perfectly crafted to raise money for Cancer Research in Suffolk.
As well as finding your way through the maze there will also be live music from Karl Knights, a licensed bar, barbecue, hog roast and barbecued sweetcorn.

All the money raised will go to CCIS and the Raise the Roof campaign launched by the Evening Star in April.
The money will build a centre at Ipswich Hospital where people can do their own research into cancer.
Books and the internet will be available to all sectors of the community, giving information on cancer, such as what people can expect when they have the disease, self-examination techniques and how to avoid the risks of cancer.
There will also be details of what benefits people are entitled to while they are ill.
Private rooms should also be available for friends, family or carers of patients to talk to consultants about what they should expect in the future.
