It features a recording studio and a kitchen - it's even completely soundproof. Blue Forest, the company behind it, says the treehouse has been constructed from Kebony wood, an eco-friendly alternative to tropical wood which acts as a soundproofing material.

After the show, the treehouse will be donated to the Chestnut Tree House children's hospice.
