MORE than 1,000 motorbikes from all over the Midlands, decorated in purple, will descend on Pershore this week, as part of the celebrations for the town's Plum Festival.

Led by giant plum Prunella, accompanied by the Plum Charmer, and on their very own trike, a parade down the purple-bedecked High Street cheered on by the locals, will be followed by revelry in the local pubs, restaurants and eateries.
