When you order a gherkin (nicknamed a wally when we were kids) in the Aldeburgh chip shop (not The Galleon) what you get is a small polystyrene pot of gherkin slices ... alrightish ... easier to share.

Excellent complimentary glass of prosecco with Murder on the Orient Express at the Aldeburgh Cinema Saturday night. Lovely Olivia Colman gets virtually nothing to do but we liked Johnny Depp's facial scars. If we owned a dinner jacket we would have worn it.

Now that's picky, the premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi at Aldeburgh Cinema is 12:01am Thursday 14 December ... we wonder maybe they mean Friday 15? You can book now (about halfway down the page and it's slow to load).

If like us you enjoy films where nothing much happens try the one off showing 8pm tonight at the Aldeburgh Cinema of The Consequences of Love ... surprisingly it's a sort of mafia movie.

In 1935 AG Potter Framlingham received an invoice for threshing, in 1910 the Aldeburgh golf clubhouse caught fire, we don't know where licenced grocer John Allen had his shop and our favourite is this little girl in her sturdy boots.

We recall Aldeburgh Music being a name change from something like Aldeburgh Foundation some years back? Either way as Aldeburgh Music now owns all the Snape Maltings site Aldeburgh Music is changing its name to Snape Maltings.

We last saw Common Ground Theatre in Aldeburgh where their four handed Justin and the Argonauts was well routined and getting plenty of laughs, especially from the appreciative Hertfordshire holiday maker next to us. The company's current show The Unhappy Medium has been on the road since the beginning of the month. The tour is winding down but it can be seen tonight in Laxfield and a Saturday matinee has been added to the three day run next month at the Sir John Mills Theatre Ipswich.

♫ We got a bit excited about Québécoise band Le Vent du Nord being part of this year's Aldeburgh Proms because we actually made the effort a while back to see La Bottine Souriante at the Cambridge Folk Festival (they took forever to get set up and the dancer got on our nerves but worth the journey.) Vent du Nord are more traditional (no brass section, no dancer) but look worth the effort.
