Hay Fever is a Noel Coward comedy about a totally mad weekend house party in the 1920s. Last night's performance at the Bungay Fisher Theatre was beautifully costumed, had a very decent sized and appreciative audience and some of the cast's OTT business tempted applause mid-performance. Last chance to see tonight at the Pavilion Theatre Gorleston.

The long bar at Epic Studios Norwich has been moved from one wall to another (but still a decent cup of coffee for £1.50) moving one set of roller derby spectators from along the back straight to across turns one and two for a Mustard City Rollers co-ed double bout. Suitable Halloween atmosphere, Suffolk RD skater Bella Hellatrix Pritchard ... more here

The Beccles Public Hall is one of those charming market town spaces and the bar opens for rehearsals! Last night we were lucky enough to see the dress of Beccles Light Opera's 'Our House' a musical based on the songs of Madness. There's a lot of the Beccles Light Opera and they can dance as well as sing making for very impressive set pieces. The show runs till the weekend.

One of the many things we like about roller derby is it usually finds a fix: at Easton College banquettes (there are such things) taken from the foyer to make a penalty box when the usual gym forms went missing. Saturday at UEA Norwich the lead connecting the laptop to the scoreboard projector was missing, so someone nipped out and bought another projector! No tutti frutti.

The bus shelter(s) that used to be in Station Road Framlingham have been clouted by something vehicular twice. First in 2009 (gossip was something large turning out Victoria Mill Road) and though both crashes made the shelter unusable they weren't as comprehensive as this wipe out in Tasburgh on the A140.

This evening we were on a Diss bench eating cod and chips (a little oily but ok) and looking at Fair Green. We could hear but not see children playing in a garden. Every so often the top two thirds of a young girl would appear above the fence before disappearing as she jumped. Before one jump we swear she said One small step for me, one giant leap for girlkind.

♫ At Stradisphere last night in Stradbroke as so often at events it took darkness, the approaching show end and possibly Earl Soham Vic at £3.50/pint for the good sized crowd to fill in the empty space at the stage front. Food, sweets and witty tie died babywear stalls and we much enjoyed three no bass player piece from Norwich The Signs. The festival continues today with Oasis tribute Definitely Maybe topping tonight.

♫ Three stages at the free Global Rhythm in Ipswich Saturday. On Peppery's Martin Burley stage we can personally recommend the eleven? piece Goldmaster Allstars and from Norwich Vagaband (awful name, brilliant band) depping for an unwell Hank Wangford.
