This is Chrismasy, a Halesworth scout hut burnt to the ground on Christmas morning.

Alice Mottram in The Prisoner of ZendaFriday night we went prison visiting in Halesworth.  Common Ground's production of The Prisoner of Zenda was polished and getting good laughs though sometimes the puns laid down and died, like who remembers Bernard Bresslaw?  Well we do actually as he was an old boy of our school.  Common Ground tour Prisoner until the... Christmas eh? end of the month and then their Christmas show The Canterville Ghost and other spooks tours towards the end of December.

Britten's Got TalentIt's always a good idea to be disrespectful of the great and the good otherwise they start thinking god put them there.  Tomorrow's reading of the comedy Britten's Got Talent at the Halesworth Cut sounds like it might be doing just that public service.

♫ The Halesworth Arts Festival started Saturday and runs until Sunday 27th when The Horne Sectionit closes with Swinging at the Cotton Club at £19.50 a ticket.  Alex Horne and the Horne Section (we rather like their diffident slightly cack handed wit on Radio 4 ... not so sure about the beard though, they're everywhere in a large town near Chelmsford) this Wednesday at a slightly cheaper £17.50

Two brooches (perhaps lockets?) have been held at Halesworth cop shop since earlier in the year and the cops suspect of sentimental value as they contain photographs.

Kathleen WilliamsonThe conceit of Where's Elvis? is rock stars (mostly from the 50/60s) who died before their time arrive in heaven and then feel the need to sing one of their hits (♫There are three steps to heaven♫) accompanied by the multi instrument four piece house band with Roger Eno on keyboards including accordion.  Being Mouth to Mouth Theatre Otis Redding is white, Janis Joplin is black and Richie Valens is splendidyly Latino Buddy Hollyand looks a lot like Polly Gibbons.  We might have got all the rockers if the visual clues hadn't been projected onto the knicker blinds that make up the  set and notable that author Gordon Thorburn didn't just cross out Jimmy Savile and write in Kenny Everett.  Last night at the Halesworth Cut tonight and you might be able to get a ticket.

The Halesworth teen shelter damaged by an optimistic arsonist earlier this week.

♫The Maverick concert at the Halesworth Cut tonight is part of the town's art festival and we're desolate we can't make it but with a following wind we should be snapping their second annual Thanksgiving ranch party next month at Easton farm park.

Where's Elvis?The Halesworth Cut's Christmas musical this year is Where's Elvis ... they've just re-written the Jimmy Saville character as Kenny Everett and while we're on the subject it's the annual Child Safeguarding Conference in Kesgrave Friday.

♫ Like we said before three decent bands topping at Halesworth's Gig in the Park this weekend and this may be the last year the three day show is held.

we 23 May

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.

Laura Churchill at Bluebird VintageWhile we were getting in the way Saturday at Bluebird Vintage in Halesworth a browser said to his wife It's like the Tardis.  There may be only three rooms but they do seem to go on forever and absolutely crammed with the past charmingly displayed.  What's more the building was once The Hawk Inn, part of the Yarmouth brewery Lacons estate and reportedly a pub with a bit of a rep ... but then the great and the good often think that of all pubs.

sa 5 May

Hippy Jo in a Banyan changing roomBanyan is Hippy Jo's new shop in the middle of the Halesworth Thoroughfare and though it doesn't have a signBanyan in Halesworth yet and the credit card machine hadn't arrived when it opened today it does have loads of customers, two roomy well lit changing rooms, a toilet and a teensy kitchenette with an even smaller (if only just) fridge.  The ethically sourced clothing, jewellery and smellies are more mainstream than Jo's stock when on Framlingham, Saxmundham and Woodbridge markets .... but there's still whimsy, gotta be a winner.

th 29 Mar

We couldn't have read it properly the first time because we're surprised to find topping at this year's Halesworth Gig In The Park are Fun Loving Criminals, Katrina (isn't she Canadian?) and the Waves (Walking on Sunshine may be nearly 30 years old but it is genuinely feel good) and Doctor Feelgood's inheritors Nine Below Zero.♫

sa 14 Jan

The conceit of The Flint Street Nativity is that seven year olds are played by Luke Scriven and Steve Chadwickadults leading to the virgin Mary (copying her mother) declaiming Me? You want me to dress like tart?!  Circle 67's production last night in the Halesworth Cut had a good house who were fulsomely enjoying themselves and frequently applauding.  There's a matinee today so two chances to see the play on it last day.

A white van (is there any other colour?) leaving Halesworth yesterday failed to stop after side swiping a burgundy Vauxhall Corsa.

PCSO Mary ThompsonIt's the open Saxmundham and Framlingham Safer Neighbourhood Team meeting in the Sax Market Hall 2pm this afternoon.  Worryingly not only has Fram PCSO Mary Thompson been moved from Fram to Halesworth but Sergeant Daye Goddard along with 29 other officers has been given notice to leave and the Sax and Fram SNT will be run by the Aldeburgh and Leiston SNT Sergeant ...

The Keeper's DaughterTheatre company The Keeper's Daughter who toured a tight and creative Dracula last year are rehearsing what will certainly be an original Hamlet around the libraries (mostly) of ntc later this month (while we've still got the libraries) including Halesworth, Stradbroke and Saxmundham.

We like allotments, they always seem such calm, safe places but sadly vulnerable, last week an allotment shed in Halesworth was burgled.
