Hay 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 the cast's ott business tempted applause mid-performance. Last chance to see tonight at the Pavilion Theatre Gorleston.

Six hours of British American football at Colchester Rugby Club Sunday. A very rewarding tuck stall, a scoreboard (we do find it hard keeping up with the score especially when it's not clear whether a point after at the other end was good or not) and half time entertainment from twirlers carrying as many injuries as a roller derby league. Hosts Colchester Gladiator's defence started strongly but the very short handed team faded to a 40-00 whitewash from the Bury Saints. In the second game Kent Exiles came from behind for a 28-14 win over Herts Cheetahs. Enjoyed it all and thankfully no overtime.
