Ben Folds and A Piano

I was first introduced to Ben Folds in 2008, when the sound technician at the theatre I worked at used the Ben Folds Five as sound check music. By the end of the week I had to ask him what was playing and it was instantly added to my very small iTunes library- which at the time mainly consisted of show tunes and 80s rock! (I did discover that I knew a fair few of their songs already though)

Improbable- The Paper Man

Its a festival of firsts for me this year. First time writing about dance. First time writing about music and first time at The Norwich Puppet Theatre.

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long – its a brilliant venue that I will be keeping a closer eye on for sure.

Improbable have been on my radar for years. The company were founded by Julian Crouch, Phelim McDermott, Lee Simpson and Nick Sweeting in 1996. They came up frequently during university, but our paths never crossed until now!

What do we do when fascism comes to town?

My First Peak- Hiking Passage Peak on Hamilton Island

I love to walk. I walk a lot in Norfolk, but the thing about Norfolk is it is rather flat.

Ok- now that is a lie, I can safely attest that there are hills, but Beeston Bump aside there are no great inclines.
I have had the hiking bug for quite some time now, but it would be quite a journey to hike my first peak. I’d have to head inland and the two combined would turn into a multi- day trip, which at the moment isn’t really possible.

So when I discovered that the island in the Whitsundays I would be staying on had a peak I made a note in my notebook that I would be doing it.

Fun House- Brisbane Festival 2017

The first post from my amazing trip to Australia is about a theatre show- which was actually one of the last things I did whilst out there. BUT this show finishes on Sunday 24th September so I wanted to post this before then just in case it tempts anyone in and around Brisbane to go!

Fun House was created by Strut & Fret especially for this years Brisbane Festival. They are the same company who created “Limbo” and “Blanc de Blanc” ( both of which have been performed in the UK so fingers crossed for Fun House making the trip overseas.)

HighTide Festival 2017


I hate missing out on exciting theatre, but that is one thing I will be doing this September.

Now I know I can’t complain too much about missing this festival – especially as I will be having amazing adventures in Australia (and possibly even seeing theatre at the Brisbane Festival ) but I thought seeing as you were all so interested in the Norfolk and Norwich festival that I would let you know about The HighTide Festival taking place in Aldeburgh, Suffolk from 12-17th September.
