Bloody Christmas ... eh?Around near the coast theatre companies are putting their ChristmasChristmas Carol being rehearsed in Fressingfield shows together.  In Fressingfield Sunday Roughcast Theatre were rehearsing a Christmas Carol with an impressive Marley's ghost and a live choir.  The show goes on the road next month with visits to Huntingfield, Stowmarket, Hoxne, Southwold and Wingfield.

Election hustings at Wingfield BarnsWe attended our first election hustings yesterday, it was in the Wingfield Barns and organised by the Country Landowners Association.  There was pretty much one of each flavour candidate but only Labour's Jack Abbot and the Green's Rhodri Griffiths (he lives in Parham) standing in Central Suffolk.  To be honest we didn't stay long and during that time the audience neither booed or cheered but it was nice to see some election activity.

Mark FinbowLast night of The Gatekeeper's Daughter's Dracula tour in Debenham tonight but thankfully it's likely to go out on the road around near the coast again ... they do do Stefan Drury and Alice Grace Mottrama fine job they do.  It was a slightly unsettling experience in the dressing room after the show in Wingfield last night seeing the cast out of make up, they're all younger than you think:)  More pix on that there FacePack.

Russell Coulson far rightBritish artist Russell Coulson (on the far right) has lived in Australia and this certainly shows in the colours at his first UK exhibition running until Saturday 18th September at the Wingfield Barns.  Perhaps most immediately engaging of his work are portraits of the great and the good ... well the famous at least.  He told us he tries to just do it creating like a child does.  Russell is giving workshops this week explaining his techniques, contact 01379 384505  More pix on Facebook.

Wingfield de le Pole Arms  des' dinners 59

Wingfield de le Pole ArmsNot particularly cold but one those winter days when it rains all day and is dark at three for The Brewer and NaTCH to visit this somewhat remote and recently reopened pub.  It has been made over in gastro pub style but still has public/saloon bars, a surprisingly large restaurant at the rear, friendly staff and draught Adnams, Adnams Explorer and slightly over chilled Adnams Old which we still enjoyed ... soon to have ESB beer.  When we said we'd sit in the armchairs the barman (landlord?) volunteered Comfortable just like homeNot at all like my house The Brewer replied except neither of us have carpetAfAR s from Hugh (in Dublin drinking that filthy Guinness stuff), Spadge (collecting Lotus élan from Biggin Hill) and John B (who won his case).  (first visit  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)
