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…

Barely Methodical Troupe – SHIFT

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. SHIFT Explores shifting perceptions and realities through power based acrobatics mixing show-stopping circus tricks with the emotional punch of theatre.

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…

Shakespeare With The Handlebards

Last Friday I saw my first ( and sadly probably only) outdoor theatre of the summer. Shakespeare’s As You Like It performed by brilliant company – The Handlebards. 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…

Super Sunday- Race Horse Company

Race Horse Company are an all male Finnish Contemporary Circus Troupe created in 2008 with an aim “to take over the world” and after what I saw last night I think they actually can! Race Horse Company turned the Theatre Royal stage into an abandoned fairground and proceeded to run riot on the equipment that…

Grand Canyon South Rim Tour 

As soon as we started talking about our trip to Las Vegas we all agreed there was no way we were not visiting the Grand Canyon. There were so many tour options out there, ranging through all sorts of prices, with helicopter rides, raft rides, MULE rides and bright pink hummers. After much discussion and…

The Pure Scent Candles.

For me, candles are normally a winter thing. In the summer I love to have the windows open and let the breeze through the house ( and the spiders too eeeek!) so burning a candle would seem a bit like a waste of money. But there are some times when its a typical British summer,…
