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!…

HighTide Festival 2017

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

The Handlebards started their journey in 2013 and are currently two troupes of cycling actors who carry all of the necessary set, props and costume to perform Shakespeare…

Rear View – IOU

I couldn’t have got more lucky with the weather for my last trip to this years Norfolk and Norwich Festival. Glorious sunshine turning into a stunning sunset totally enhanced this innovative outdoor performance. IOU have designed a vehicle and created a show called Rear View– who’s world premiere took place here at the NNF. I…

Driftwood- Casus Circus

Last night I went on my first trip of the week to The Norfolk and Norwich Festival. This time I was walking up to The Spiegeltent in Chapelfield Gardens. It was another beautiful day so once I collected my ticket it was all about a pint of cider. I was at the Adnams Spiegeltent to…
