A bit disorientated yesterday afternoon by the service entrance to WoodbridgeSherlock Holmes meets Count Dracula School now being a housing estate.  Using the main entrance we found the matinee of Sherlock Holmes meets Count Dracula in the Seckford Theatre.  Appreciative applause and constant laughter from a decent house and the expected daftness from a Common Ground show, our favourite was the Count's two wives.

Haggis (who had a car spares shop in part of Fram DIY so he should know) saysHillman Super Minx yesterday's car outside the Woodbridge Angel is a Hillman Super Minx.  Despite the front over riders we have to agree because though the bonnet maker's name is unreadable it's clearly seven not six characters .  We jumped for a Humber Sceptre because a chum's mother had one ... on reflection it might have been a Singer Vogue.  Impressed that one time Thailand resident Haggis is now living in Spain.

The Angel - Theatre Street Woodbridge Woodbridge Town football club (junior and senior) had a successful 1908-1909 season, the Thoroughfare looked familiar in 1910 and much later in the century a Humber Sceptre parked outside The Angel.

Annette Badland plays DCI Gwen DanburySet in East Suffolk police whodunit DI Gwen Danbury has no strong sense of place but name checks locals like Orford and Woodbridge.  Copper Gwen Danbury is played by the delicious Annette Badland who was so wonderful in Little Voice.

Suffolk ConstabularyIf not a crime wave around near the coast at least a ripple.  Last night both Darsham and Framlingham petrol stations were burgled, Friday a quad bike was stolen in the Yoxford area and about the same time two expensive looking bicycles were stolen from a Woodbridge shed.

we 18 Mar

Campsea Ashe Spring Fayre cancelledAldeburgh Cinema has closed for the duration so we won't get to see Emma this afternoon but the Woodbridge Riverside seems to be partially functioning.  The Red Rooster festival near Thetford has been postponed to September and Life Arts have postponed April's Woodbridge festival to next year.  All Snape Maltings music events cancelled until the end of April (we were lucky), the Phoenix Singers concert in Framlingham next month cancelled as is the Campsea Ashe Spring Fayre this Saturday and still only three virus cases in Suffolk.

New Street Market WoodbridgeIn the Woodbridge Thoroughfare after 25 years the Leather and Sheepskin Shop closed in the spring, the Firestation Cafe also closed but more recently and the new to us New Street Market looks very attractive and appears to contain an outpost of the Pump Street Bakery ... they do have a fan club.

Usual lazy media patronising shite that anything not metropolitan is cutesy, this time Woodbridge and Framlingham ,.. mind you they managed to show Fram Castle without the sound of recorders and lutes.
