Nick Murray Brown in The Wandering SpectreTuesday night we visited at least four bits of the Diss Corn Hall (the foyer and bar have been really poshed up) for the second, free and promenade performance of ghosty The Wandering SpectreAs it got more scary the audience's younger members occasionally laughed ... perhaps to reassure themselves they weren't frightened.  Fine performances from the minimalist cast including effectively Sophie Scannell in her brief appearances as the ghost.

Great Yarmouth Winter GardensIt continues to surprise us how popular roller skating was as an entertainment at the beginning of last century, including the magnificent looking Great Yarmouth Winter Gardens.  In today's long running Radio 4 drama Home Front set during the first world war a couple go roller skating on Folkestone pierMrs Adeline Lumley: I'm afraid I'll fall over.  Staff Sergeant Silas Morrow: That's the idea.

Zombie Evacuation Hockwold cum WiltonThe Zombie Evacuation in  Hockwold cum Wilton Sunday had a more open setting than the Cambridge Evac we snapped three years ago but generous use of smoke grenades and energetically committed zombies made for the expected stimulating experience.  Pleasant coffee service from the converted horsebox and thankfully the heavy rain held off until the event was pretty much over.  The zombies are returning to Hockwold September next year.

Yakety Yak's production of Hay FeverHay Fever is a Noel Coward comedy about a totally mad weekend house party in the 1920s.  Last night's performance at the Bungay Fisher Theatre was beautifully costumed, had a very decent sized and appreciative audience and some of the cast's OTT business tempted applause mid-performance.  Last chance to see tonight at the Pavilion Theatre Gorleston.

Tasburgh bus shelterThe bus shelter(s) that used to be in Station Road Framlingham have been clouted by something vehicular twice.  First in 2009 (gossip was something large turning out Victoria Mill Road) and though both crashes made the shelter unusable they weren't as comprehensive as this wipe out in Tasburgh on the A140.

This evening we were on a Diss bench eating cod and chips (a little oily but ok) and looking at Fair Green.  We could hear but not see children playing in a garden.  Every so often the top two thirds of a young girl would appear above the fence before disappearing as she jumped.  Before one jump we swear she said One small step for me, one giant leap for girlkind.

Bury Saints v Sussex ThunderDespite a pleasant morning here in near the coast we suspect that this year's Paris-Roubaix could be a muddy one.  Either way we won't be chasing it around the Internet because we'll be near Thetford snapping the Bury Saints v Sussex Thunder rematch that was such an outstanding semi-final last year ... it's free admission.

Norfolk Brawds B v Suffolk Roller DerbyWe like a guiding principle that's been pared down to a few words (Don't get involved Michael The Godfather) so much enjoyed Philthy Delphia's shouted Git It And Quit It to a lead jammer last Saturday.  She was advising from the outfield the Norfolk Brawds B team in a scrimmage with Suffolk Roller Derby.  The bout went both ways ending in a Brawds win.  Rewardingly the scoreboard had the perception to keep moving about so everyone could see it.  Thankfully no major injuries ... good stuff!
