'Our House' Beccles Light OperaThe 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.

Natastrophe and Coco coaches of the Smash Hit BrollersOne 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.

Tasburgh bus shelterThe 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.

Bon Giovi at Stradisphere 2016♫ 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.

Bury Saints v Sussex ThunderDespite a pleasant morning here in near the coast we suspect that this year's Paris-Roubaix could be a muddy one.  Either way we won't be chasing it around the Internet because we'll be near Thetford snapping the Bury Saints v Sussex Thunder rematch that was such an outstanding semi-final last year ... it's free admission.
