7:30pm tomorrow at the very pleasant Brockdish Kings Head RoughCast Theatre will be reading the the Moliere comedy School for Wives. Remembering how well a French farce went in a Framlingham garden Moliere instead of Shakespeare for the company's summer tour seems a plan.

Last night in Norfolk (if only just) Brockdish Village Hall had a good house for the Castleton Brass Band. In the Old King's Head it was running a mask and wait to be seated. In a side room with candle light and drinks RoughCast Theatre were reading and laughing at the Tom Stoppard comedy On The Razzle.

Man in the Hat (not this one) is bravely crossing into Norfolk tomorrow to play The Cellar House Eaton and returns to his home town next month. In the meantime he his accepting bookings for 2022 so you can experience his impressive chest voice and has even found time to continue his support for us. ♫

Saddening but not surprisingly the Red Rooster Festival near Thetford has been postponed until next year. Robert Stan Stamper (seen here on the Ipswich Cardinals chain crew entertaining the visiting Bury Saints sideline) at last year's Maverick Festival before dashing off to dance with his daughter told us the 2018 Roosterfest had been brilliant. ♫

♫ We're easily confused but what we've worked out is the Red Rooster festival near Thetford was postponed back in March to September but as it would have been this weekend it's gone virtual on its Facebook page.

There have been 1,235 confirmed Covid-19 cases in Suffolk and Norfolk has the worst percentage in East Anglia. Forty fourth reason to be cheerful ... do we recognise this ... I've looked all over this keyboard and there isn't a button with OK on it.

Aldeburgh Cinema has closed for the duration so we won't get to see Emma this afternoon but the Woodbridge Riverside seems to be partially functioning. The Red Rooster festival near Thetford has been postponed to September and Life Arts have postponed April's Woodbridge festival to next year. All Snape Maltings music events cancelled until the end of April (we were lucky), the Phoenix Singers concert in Framlingham next month cancelled as is the Campsea Ashe Spring Fayre this Saturday and still only three virus cases in Suffolk.

♫ At this year's Red Rooster Festival near(ish) Thetford Asleep at the Wheel celebrate 50 years on the road. Perhaps best described as western swing AatW with maybe slightly fewer players than we recall but still the fine chest voice of Ray Benson.

♫ We're very please to welcome back Garth Brooks' separated at birth twin brother Man in the Hat who can be seen Christmasing in the Framlingham post office. MitH will be welcoming the New Year in Norfolk ... well somebody has to.
