The event, held on on 11-12 June will offer children the chance to be a designer and create a tie for their dad whilst raising money for less fortunate children in other parts of the world.

There is an entry fee of £8 per child, which includes tie and paints plus a donation to Feed The Children (UK).

The child who designs the best designer tie for his or her dad will win £25 worth of gardening vouchers for her dad.

The ties will be on display, while they dry, so people can come and view them in the week leading up to Fathers Day.

Owner Julian Ranson said:

"We dads are always so difficult to buy for. That we have come up with a novel way to create that very special present. The ties were donated to Feed The Children (UK) to use to raise money for the charity and we were lucky enough to be asked to help them with the fundraising so that children in the West Midlands could also have fun whilst raising money for charity. The ties we have are designer ‘art ties’.  We hope you will come along and join in the fun."
