Cromer and Sheringham Crab and Lobster Festival 2017

Cromer and Sheringham basked in the sunshine this weekend – Perfect weather for the 2017 Cromer and Sheringham Crab and Lobster Festival.

It took place from Friday 19th through till Sunday 21st May, Starting in Cromer and taking over Sheringham’s historic sea front on the Sunday.

I only managed to make it to Sheringham on the Sunday but followed all the fun from the first two days in Cromer on social media. I really missed out and will make sure I am free next year to take part in the entire weekend!

On the Friday night at Cromer Pier there was a concert at the Pavilion Theatre with Olly Day, Nigel Boy Syer, The Sheringham Shantymen and Marlene’s Dancers. 

The Festival really kicked off during the day on Saturday. They took over the Evington Lawns and held cooking demonstrations, crab dressing workshops, heritage displays and local produce stalls whilst live music and The Woodfords Beer Tent kept all hydrated.

On Sunday the festival continued in Cromer, but also spread down the coast to Sheringham, closing off the seafront to traffic and taking over The Crown Inn’s car park.

In Sheringham children were being entertained by Razz the Clown and Auntie Pearl and the Eastern IFCA’s amazing  giant fish tank that held (believe it or not) various types of crab and a couple of HUGE lobsters. The team running the tank were friendly and answered all sorts of questions. AND they were brave enough to stick their hands into the tank! This guy may have been safe, but there were smaller crabs in there wandering freely that could have a good nip if they so wished!

Moving back to Norfolk.

 

If you follow me on any social media you may have noticed that I am moving back to North Norfolk in the first week of August.

This move was always on the cards within the next 6 months. London is very expensive and our lucky housing situation wasn’t going to last forever.

I just wasn’t expecting it to be so soon, and to have to move so fast. BUT I somehow managed to do the seemingly impossible….

I managed to get a paid theatre job in North Norfolk.

“Wild” Swimming, Patagonia & Theatre Cats!

June was quite the busy month!

I was working full on at both theatres, with two changes of  production too!

At the end of June Breakfast at Tiffany’s arrived after a national tour, starring Pixie Lott. We are its home for the next 12 weeks and it’s all looking rather good. I should hopefully be watching next week so keep an eye out for a review! And keep an eye out on my instagram, as there is a cat in the show and I am determined to meet him!

A Few Nights In Norfolk.

It’s been a quiet few weeks on the blog front. I had to put my blogging on hold to work on a project and now that’s all done and done I can get back to writing about my totally exciting London life.

Except (hopefully) it is going to get a little more exciting over the summer. I have a few workshops and events booked in, as well as the Star Trek Beyond premiere and quite a few theatre trips.

It’s looking up!

I found myself with a few days off from both jobs this weekend and so decided to head for the countryside.

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, raining and miserable and just WET when you need to just relax, read a book and maybe burn a candle.
