The Black Swan chefThe Homersfield (it's near Diss) Black Swan yesterday was packed with chairmen, facilitators, co-ordinators, mayoral chains, at least one cleric and a slap up cream team to launch Seven Towns In Sound which includes Eye and Halesworth.  The downloadable audio walking guides have been produced by Nick Jenkins of Soundboard Productions who did a similar thing for Framlingham (and an impromptu skatepark opening) a couple of years back.

tu 10 Apr

Last year The Keeper's Daughter put together a brilliant promenade Romeo and Juliet at the high school in Eye.  They're doing it again this summer but this time it's Alice Through The Looking Glass.

Romeo and JulietYou need to know for Romeo and Juliet at Hartismere School Eye it's red for Montague and blue for Capulet ... the audience are Montagues and Capulets too.  This promenade production (the audience move to follow the action) by the Keeper's Daughter is witty, extremely original and the young cast take it on at 100mph (we bet Romeo's mum was annoyed he'd got his shirt so dirty at just the dress rehearsal).  Two shows today, go and see it.  More pix on FB

Impressively Eye managed to have their mayor making last Sunday without getting the English Defence League in to decorate the place and the town has a pub again now the Queen's Head has re-opened.

tu 24 May

We thought that Eye didn't have a pub anymore so a reasonable assumption that this trainee chef (including day release) is WANTED at the Stoke Ash White Horse.
