♫ Last night Canadian Lynne Hanson and her band hit the spot at the Eye Bank and we were sonically tickled by the melodic bass licks of Mari Joseé Dandeneau. In 2014 we photographed Lynne on crutches at Easton Farm Park and it has taken three operations and until this year for her to be right again ... pleased to hear it.

We nominally visited the Eye Bank Tuesday to see Christine Cooper's weekly print class but was distracted (we're easily distracted) by the building. It had been the Midland bank but earlier this year in blisteringly fast time the pretty much abandoned fabric was renovated to became an arts centre and a cafe with a proper coffee machine. Though a few of the rooms seem to be searching for a purpose considered thought has been used and we were gratified to inspect a real strong room.

The 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.

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.

You 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
