UEA 29-00 Essex BladesSaturday we thought we were going to photograph American football in Norwich but discovered it was just part of Derby Day when UEA plays Essex Uni at seventy different sports including ultimate frisby, women's rugby, futsal?, cheerleading both dance and stunt but no roller derby.  A stunning introduction for us to lacrosse, committed support from both sides and placards of which this Donald Trump parody we much enjoyed.  Next year Essex will be hosting.

UEA Pirates 6-9 Cambridge PythonsThe UEA Pirates lost 6-9 to the Cambridge Pythons in Norwich Sunday as their last home game in the BUCS South East.  A not entirely satisfactory game but the Pirates single touchdown was a high bomb to a wide receiver dramatically at a flying full stretch ... and we didn't snap it ...

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.
