Tina Bradshaw at the Halesworth CutTina Bradshaw eastern life coach starts by serving audience members from a teapot special tea that turns out to be white wine ... it goes on from there.  Last night in the Halesworth Cut she was predominantly comic parody but affectionate and endearing parody with a little actual counselling, or perhaps rather more a group of friends talking with one of their number who had opened up a little.  She is a complete one off, catch her if you can.

Autumnal Equinox

The first silent film we saw with piano accompaniment was the German monolith (it's a good idea to take sandwiches) Metropolis and the pianist put in two rather good musical jokes.  Tomorrow night's film at the Halesworth Cut is the Harold Lloyd comedy Safety Last so accompanist Tom Horton won't need to be funny in his own right.

The Blacksmith Who Chased The MoonAt the Halesworth Cut last night in front of a good house The Blacksmith Who Chased The Moon is based on a story by 19th century Russian author Nikolai Gogol so not your usual panto then ... but lots of physical stuff from the male actors, some spectacular effects, lots of laughs My father is the Lord Mayor of Southwold ... we are not wealthy and despite the pic a family show.  Blacksmith continues at The Cut until Sunday 3rd January.

Halesworth phone boxLife Skills 6:  When did you last make a call from a pay phone box?  (Yes, they do still exist, this one's near Halesworth station.)  We think our last time was ten years ago in Epping High Street and we put a pound coin in to be safe, nowadays it's a bit more complicated.

The Tramps in the the Halesworth Cut last night has moved on since we last saw it in the Eye bank, it now includes a running joke about Ed Sheeran with his lovely red hair and his lovely blue eyes.

Mascots embracing in HalesworthSaturday we went to Halesworth to see Daddy Christmas arrive but had time to visit Hippy Jo in her shop of two years now.  Daddy C arrived by the simple process of walking out of the library and then processing along the Thoroughfare led by the very excellent Southwold and Reydon Drum Corp which as well as festive lighting had some real tinys.  Before all that there was a great moment when the two mascots spotted each other and embraced.

We've picked up three new faves on Flickr; Halloween in Aldeburgh, laptop on the line and our easily most viewed pic Hippy Jo.  You may remember Jo had a Fairtrade clothing stall on Framlingham, Saxmundham and possibly Woodbridge.

It has to be said that in the Halesworth Cut Friday night the Hackney Colliery Band were LOUD but at least half of the full house had seen them at last year's High Tide

Hackney Colliery Band at the Halesworth Cut

festival so knew what they were getting and had come back for more.  Hard to categorise the band, they are thunderously driving, band leader Steve Pretty hot on the witty verbals and stage business, and snare drummer Luke Christie's expressive enthusiasm endearing and visually rewarding.  Last day of the festival this Saturday.

Juliet Stevenson at the 2012 High Tide festivalWhen we posted this pic of Juliet Stevenson at the 2012 High Tide festival in Halesworth on our Facebook page an Italian fan commented thought she was murdered in a Miss Marple.  This year's festival starts tomorrow and runs until Saturday 19th and we particularly fancy the Hackney Colliery Band this Friday and the conversation with actor Michael Gambon on the 19th.
