In 1935 AG Potter Framlingham received an invoice for threshing, in 1910 the Aldeburgh golf clubhouse caught fire, we don't know where licenced grocer John Allen had his shop and our favourite is this little girl in her sturdy boots.

We recall Aldeburgh Music being a name change from something like Aldeburgh Foundation some years back? Either way as Aldeburgh Music now owns all the Snape Maltings site Aldeburgh Music is changing its name to Snape Maltings.

We last saw Common Ground Theatre in Aldeburgh where their four handed Justin and the Argonauts was well routined and getting plenty of laughs, especially from the appreciative Hertfordshire holiday maker next to us. The company's current show The Unhappy Medium has been on the road since the beginning of the month. The tour is winding down but it can be seen tonight in Laxfield and a Saturday matinee has been added to the three day run next month at the Sir John Mills Theatre Ipswich.

♫ We got a bit excited about Québécoise band Le Vent du Nord being part of this year's Aldeburgh Proms because we actually made the effort a while back to see La Bottine Souriante at the Cambridge Folk Festival (they took forever to get set up and the dancer got on our nerves but worth the journey.) Vent du Nord are more traditional (no brass section, no dancer) but look worth the effort.

Saturday there's a matinee showing at the Aldeburgh Cinema of Speed Sisters, an unlikely doc about a women's race car team in occupied Palestine.

Despite the filthy weather (and our word wasn't it windy on the Aldeburgh front last night) a very decent house in the Jubilee Hall for Justin and the Argonauts. The five handed cast tackle a multiplicity of characters (our favourites were the Scottish hand maidens) and musical numbers. Common Ground's tour continues tomorrow at the New Wolsey Studio Ipswich.
On our way home two people in front of the Aldeburgh cinema were wringing a rug out ...
