Boy Blue – Blak Whyte Gray.

At last years Norfolk and Norwich Festival I wrote my first blog about dance. Nothing has changed and much like before, I still know little about dance, and even less about hip-hop. But even with my very small knowledge of the subject, I had heard of the production Blak Whyte Gray- by Boy Blue.

Gravity & Other Myths – A Simple Space

Today’s blog marks the return of the Spiegeltent – a fantastic temporary venue in Chapelfield Gardens. It is the home to many shows, but today we are talking about A Simple Space, by internationally renown Gravity and other Myths. They are an Australian circus troupe that formed in 2009, and the award winning production they…

Wild Longings – Curious Productions

Currently my life revolves around rhododendrons and a stubborn handkerchief tree. So what better way to kick off my 2019 Norfolk and Norwich Festival season by going to see an immersive piece of theatre to do with horticulture. Plants. My life revolves around plants. Although to be honest I cant exactly complain. Wild Longings was…

Finding The One

Everyone searches for the one. I’ve been searching for the last few years now. I thought I had found the one in Merlin. I met him stuck in a muddy field when I moved back to Norfolk in 2016. I fell in love instantly. Born in 1987 like me, he was a little quirky and…

My last visit to this years Norfolk and Norwich Festival was to The Adnams Spiegeltent to see the specially commissioned show SHIFT, by the Barely Methodical Troupe.

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…

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…

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!…
