Remember Roy at the Framlingham Crown (yes, he owes us money too), the Ladies Night, when the Crown had no gas and the New Year's Eve's congas? We've moved stuff about and now there's this Fram Crown section going back to 2004.

♫ Stuff to do around near the coast this weekend includes tonight a music quiz at the Framlingham Crown, the free Laxitude all weekend with Lyrical Jukebox and naughty Harleston boys Red Mecca playing tonight, plus Maritime Woodbridge tomorrow and Sunday.

Though the Framlingham Barclays' Framlington might be described as viral our 2007 Fuction pic of the adjacent Crown Hotel was only ever mildly infectious. The sign was for the opening of the converted stables at the rear of the Crown as Reubens. Round about this time we saw the teenage Ed Sheeran cycle past the historic hotel but not any Ipswich Town footballers.

We first saw KC McKanzie as a solo at a Maverick concert in the Framlingham Crown, she intrigued and impressed us. She is now one half of Leisure Tank and they are playing the Stowmarket John Peel Centre Thursday. ♫

7:30am Saturday morning actors Mackenzie Crook and Toby Jones are outside the Framlingham Crown with their bags. Simon the cheese and pie man has unloaded his van and is driving it off the hill but stops outside the Crown because a No Entry sign is in the way. Mackenzie Crook moves the sign and puts it back after Simon ... the thesps have been location filming Detectorists a new BBC4 sitcom due to air in October.

nearthecoast.com was six on Saturday, our first report was reubens opening at the back of the Framlingham Crown. We forgot all about it being our birthday. Can we forgive ourselves? Well at least we avoided the urge to have dodgy clip art of balloons, cakes and sprinkles.

♫ We wouldn't expect to hear If I Only Had A Brain or Thin Lizzy's The Boys Are Back In Town at a Maverick concert but last night in the Framlingham Crown Sweet Talk Radio turned them into gently lyrical slow ballads. Like we've said before they can all sing in country and Sweet Talk's roadie Alex Berger sang and played someone else's guitar beautifully in a two song spotette.

♫Maverick is coming to the Framlingham Crown Hotel in January with a triple bill of from Statesboro Georgia Brook Williams, from Norwich specialising in songs of death and disaster The Henry Brothers (no, they're not really brothers) and from Benhall the outstanding Lucy Sampson.

♫ The Outlaws at Sizewell Friday week SOLD OUT and Man in the Hat will be back at the Framlingham Crown this Friday ... wonder if those Aussie girls will be there again?

Suffolk's now on Google Streetview (click and drag the little man at the top of the zoom control top left) and already it's a slightly historical document ... Gosia quite rightly points out there's a three legged woman outside the Framlingham Crown.

Saturday week's quiz at the Framlingham Crown cancelled but it's the Badingham quiz tonight.

♫ Can seriously recommend the Goldmaster Allstars back near the coast tomorrow night in Ipswich, alternatively there's a Suffolk Night at the Framlingham Crown with a ploughman's thrown in but it might be sold out?
