We recall Aldeburgh Music being a name change from something like Aldeburgh Foundation some years back? Either way as Aldeburgh Music now owns all the Snape Maltings site Aldeburgh Music is changing its name to Snape Maltings.

What was a lovely sunny day yesterday turned into a sufficiently foggy night to make driving stressful enough that it limited the turn out for young Rendham artists Ania and Kasia Hobson's private view at the Quay Gallery Snape. They're there until Thursday and we rather liked the portrait of their brother Thom in a very natty suit.

Not surprisingly no remaining free tickets for Friday's lunchtime Radio 3 concert at the Snape Maltings but in the evening and Woodbridge a Friends of the Earth Musical Soirée with party fare, how glamorous and just a pound to get in.

We saw comedy The Affair at the back of the Framlingham Castle Inn last year but since then it has got longer and a new cast including Dean Sore who was such a triumph as the maid in Sganarelle.

It was our first visit to the Great Glemham village hall Saturday for the Alde Valley Players Mistletoe & Wine. In the first half Katy sang beautifully to digital accompaniment, acapella quintet from Snape Five in a Bar prompted toe tapping with a sleigh bell accompanied Christmas standard but the triumph of the half was Merry Berry cake baking assisted by a two litre bottle of vodka (from Waitrose of course). We l♥ved the conceit at the intermission that the food was dropped by the passing air ambulance (who were to benefit from the evening) and served elvishly in Christmas stockings to a full house.
