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…

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…

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.

Race Horse Company turned the Theatre Royal stage into an abandoned fairground and proceeded to run riot on the equipment that…

Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring.

My first trip to this years Norfolk and Norwich Festival was to see Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring. A seven hour production about life, death and the passing of time. As you can see I wasn’t going to ease myself into the festival slowly- I was going in headfirst with no idea what I was about…

Nine Months in Norfolk.

I just realised that I have been back in North Norfolk now for 9 months! I can’t believe how much time has flown by. I am really enjoying being back. Work is brilliant, and I have more time to try and organise and sort my life out… which after 7 years in London, seriously needs…

The Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2017

I can’t believe it’s been a year since that last launch of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival. I am even more excited about this years festival as now I live back in Norfolk I can attend SO many more of the events than I did last year. This years launch was held at The Shoe…
