Aldeburgh Cinema has closed for the duration so we won't get to see Emma this afternoon but the Woodbridge Riverside seems to be partially functioning. The Red Rooster festival near Thetford has been postponed to September and Life Arts have postponed April's Woodbridge festival to next year. All Snape Maltings music events cancelled until the end of April (we were lucky), the Phoenix Singers concert in Framlingham next month cancelled as is the Campsea Ashe Spring Fayre this Saturday and still only three virus cases in Suffolk.

When we were at Essex Uni for an american football final Sunday we noticed that The Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps was playing in the campus theatre. It's at the Aldeburgh Jubilee Hall the Saturday after next. A fearsome but funny gothic tale of dynasty, death, revenge and hope. Lovely moral. - Michael Rosen
Public booking for this year's Aldeburgh Festival starts next Tuesday, with Antonio Pappano, Tenebrae and a boat trip on the River Orwell already SOLD OUT .

2019 is the centenary year of Aldeburgh Cinema (Leiston pre-dates them by five years) and they will be marking it with their first Cinema on the Beach. We've been told that Aldeburgh folk would dress up for the cinema and be greeted in the foyer by the manager wearing evening dress, a floral buttonhole and smoking a cigar ... these days celebrities don't feel the need for a tie:)
