♫ That's a bit worrying the Stradbroke Stradisphere web site has gone away, we do hope they're not giving up ...

In 1743 (that's 33 years before the American Declaration of Independence) the Gentlemen of High Suffolk played a cricket match in Stradbroke. Yesterday on the 275th anniversary Stradbroke CC played two limited over T20s against Suffolk Cricket Women and Girls. A historic and democratic result of one game each.

Lavender and Jude the wedding dress shop in Stradbroke has moved to Bungay, can't say that's a surprise.

We first saw the Keeper's Daughter's Romeo or Juliet crikey seven years ago at Hartismere School Eye. Like Dr Who it keeps regenerating and yesterday's afternoon show at the Wingfield Barns had a confident young cast who often played with the expectation of what a play should be, we particularly liked the audience joining in with the dancing. No doubt RorJ will regenerate somewhere near you soonish ... on our way home the Stradbroke Spar had shelves that need to be filled.

♫ A very large tv screen kept the fifth Stradisphere in Stradbroke informed about the football, and Saturday night we got to see surprisingly mature well known trouble makers from Harleston Red Mecca. In the tent Das Fenster and the Alibis were a very theatrical (we like that) rockabilly type trio with stand up bass followed by Sam and the Womp who had a million selling number one in 2012 (no, we hadn't heard of them either). The Balkan influenced trumpet (yes, we know) of Sam etc prompted dancing and intriguingly entertained us.

♫ Now that's a real step forward in Stradbroke, instead of a tribute band (they have their place ... but C'mon Man!) headlining at Stradisphere this July is Badly Drawn Boy (not to be confused with Poorly Painted Pete). ♫

We find ourselves saying something is excitingly new to be told that everybody else has known about it for ages but when we bought this Snickers in the Stradbroke Spar both the checkout lady and the man having a nice chat with her were intrigued.

♫ More muso pleasure coming tomorrow in Stradbroke with what we think is the fourth Stadisphere festival. Opening the main stage this year the local and youthful Red Glass.

The Stradbroke Jazz Festival has had a break but it returns tomorrow and in Debenham. Entertaining again are the delicious Nicola Farnon and her musicians (she's Robert Farnon's great niece). ♫

It was Cricket Force day at Stradbroke CC yesterday when a good turn out started preparing the ground for the first match of the season on the 29th. Cricket Force is a cricket promotion involving NatWest and Jewsons which we didn't quite understand but we did get a very fine home made sausage roll.

Radio Stradbroke fund raiser tomorrow night in Syleham and Wingfield village hall (a new venue to us) with rock/indie/covers band Red Glass and a cheap bar ... sounds brilliant.
