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.

The Aviva Women's Tour is returning to coastal Suffolk this summer for the third time. In 2014 it was a start in Felixstowe, an eventful 2015 finish in Aldeburgh and as it seems to be toggling between stage starts and arrivals a stage one departure in Southwold this June.
Saturday there's a matinee showing at the Aldeburgh Cinema of Speed Sisters, an unlikely doc about a women's race car team in occupied Palestine.

Despite the filthy weather (and our word wasn't it windy on the Aldeburgh front last night) a very decent house in the Jubilee Hall for Justin and the Argonauts. The five handed cast tackle a multiplicity of characters (our favourites were the Scottish hand maidens) and musical numbers. Common Ground's tour continues tomorrow at the New Wolsey Studio Ipswich.
On our way home two people in front of the Aldeburgh cinema were wringing a rug out ...

It was a good sized and appreciative house in the Jubilee Hall Aldeburgh last night for Common Ground's one act comedy Stranded. Some effective adlibbing by Julian Harries when inadvertently a vase fell breaking some china That was five pounds in the Red Cross shop and we enjoyed the analysis that Sweep was the maverick one of Sooty and Sweep.

Aldeburgh was looking very yellow this afternoon for the stage one finish of the 2015 Women's Tour. We missed stage winner Lizzie Armitstead crashing just after the line but did notice unhappy faces in the team area afterwards and later on King's Field discovered it was the unfortunate Ms Armitstead being airlifted out.
