Country mice at the Alde Valley Spring FestivalLast Saturday at the opening of the Alde Valley Spring Festival in Great Glemham Maggi Hambling was just as funny as last year, there was someone off the telly we couldn't put a name to, Ipswich MP Ben Gummer with baby son and Alex Johnson being violent towards a dead tree but for us the stars were the country mice.

Mitch Benn and Neil Innes - pic contributed♫ Don't know what we make of musical parodist Mitch Benn, he's a permanent on Radio 4's The Now Show and seems to be a chum of near the coast's own gentle and brilliant parodist Neil Innes.  You can make your own mind up tomorrow when he closes the show at Ipswich's Jokers.
