Over the weekend at Artdog's second Art in the Barn (the Barn is in Easton Farm Park) we were very taken with Zoë Rubens objet trouvé type pieces. We had a nostalgic flash of pleasure recognising a Brooks bicycle cone spanner in one sculpture:). ArtDog will be showing early next month at ArtSpace Woodbridge.
♫ Saturday week in St Michael's Framlingham the East Anglian Academy present A Bavarian Festival: sparkling polychoral music by Lassus, Gabrielli and Hassler.
Theatre company Gibbons & Gaulier will be touring their three handed vaudeville style comedy The Affair around near the coast and elsewhere in October. Theatre of the absurd, clowns, French farce, slapstick... a generous helping of stage comedy.

In the Aldeburgh Jubilee Hall the five day world premiere run of LIT's ends tomorrow, an east-midlands girl looking for love in all the wrong places.
We're 10 days away from the autumnal equinox.

One of the contradictions of the art world is that private views rarely are private. Art Dog with some honesty have called theirs a launch party tomorrow evening at Easton Farm Park. Work from Suffolk artists and further afield ... even Norfolk.

Outrageous to be thinking about Christmas in September but if you need to post pressies by surface mail/International Economy to Australia, New Zealand or lots of other non-European destinations last year they need to be posted by the 28th of this month... good luck finding out the dates this year.

John Bridges sent us a pic of the wooden building in Fore Street Framlingham which was the Christian Science reading room for at least two decades. John's pic shows in the early 1960s it was harness maker Kenny Howard's workshop.

The Framlingham Pageant Field has temporary toilets. When we visited the gents it was impressively clean, a choice of four hand dispensers (we chose restore), no paper towels in the dispenser and if you stood still long enough the lights went out.
