Romeo and Juliet at the Wingfield BarnsWe first saw the Keeper's Daughter's Romeo or Juliet crikey seven years ago at Hartismere School Eye.  Like Dr Who it keeps regenerating and yesterday's afternoon show at the Wingfield Barns had a confident young cast who often played with the expectation of what a play should be, we particularly liked the audience joining in with the dancing.  No doubt RorJ will regenerate somewhere near you soonish ... on our way home the Stradbroke Spar had shelves that need to be filled.

Lynne Hanson and the Good Intentions♫ Last night Canadian Lynne Hanson and her band hit the spot at the Eye Bank and we were sonically tickled by the melodic bass licks of Mari Joseé Dandeneau.  In 2014 we photographed Lynne on crutches at Easton Farm Park and it has taken three operations and until this year for her to be right again ... pleased to hear it.

KEEP FEET CLEARWe nominally visited the Eye Bank Tuesday to see Christine Cooper's weekly print class but was distracted (we're easily distracted) by the building.  It had been the Midland bank but earlier this year in blisteringly fast time the pretty much abandoned fabric was renovated to became an arts centre and a cafe with a proper coffee machine.  Though a few of the rooms seem to be searching for a purpose considered thought has been used and we were gratified to inspect a real strong room.
