Enterprising Hippy Jo Crampton Do you remember Hippy Jo who sold Fairtrade clothing on Framlingham Market?  Some five years ago she left to open her shop Banyan in the Thoroughfare Halesworth.  We made an impromptu social visit last week to discover she wasn't there because these days she has staff ... now that is an Enterprising Hippy.

Opera-lele at the Halesworth Cut♫ Yesterday afternoon at the Halesworth Cut the two person Opera-lele melodically worked their way through mainstream opera, adverts and some musicals.  Lots of jokes and the audience who were having a lovely time and had been encouraged to join in hummed the chorus' part to Nesunn Dorma ... what a knowledgeable lot.

Celtic Gypsy Klezmer - The Dodo Street Band♫ Very pleased to welcome back supporter the Halesworth Arts Festival and we're intrigued by the prospect of klezmer (with Celtic and gypsy music) from the Dodo Steet Band, presumably the recorder of Piers Adams must substitute for clarinet?

Sponsor a Halesworth Cut seatA nice thing about the Halesworth Cut for a photographer is you can discretely move via the back of the seating from one side to the other.  Not any more though, on our last visit we discovered that the gap on the far side has gone in anticipation of new and reorganised seating this autumn.  Buy a little piece of immortality by sponsoring a seat.

4 Girls 4 Harps at the Halesorth Cut♫ In our uninformed way we suspected that 4 Girls 4 Harps (like the Ukulele Orchestra ... odd simile we know) would be one trick ponies but last night in the Halesworth Cut (like the Ukes) they proved us completely wrong.  The range of both the repertoire and the sound of the harps was way beyond the sound track to a dream sequence.  Encoring with the clog dance from La Fille Mal Gardée was just so right ... next Sunday concert the 26th of this month.

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.
