A nice thing about the Halesworth Cut for a photographer is you can discretely move via the back of the seating from one side to the other. Not any more though, on our last visit we discovered that the gap on the far side has gone in anticipation of new and reorganised seating this autumn. Buy a little piece of immortality by sponsoring a seat.

♫ In our uninformed way we suspected that 4 Girls 4 Harps (like the Ukulele Orchestra ... odd simile we know) would be one trick ponies but last night in the Halesworth Cut (like the Ukes) they proved us completely wrong. The range of both the repertoire and the sound of the harps was way beyond the sound track to a dream sequence. Encoring with the clog dance from La Fille Mal Gardée was just so right ... next Sunday concert the 26th of this month.

Halesworth Arts Festival director Matthew Wetmore has pointed out that though this is the sixth year of the Sunday Concerts it will be the sixteenth festival this autumn. We strongly suspect that as always like a Michelin three star it will be worth making a special journey for.

Tina Bradshaw eastern life coach starts by serving audience members from a teapot special tea that turns out to be white wine ... it goes on from there. Last night in the Halesworth Cut she was predominantly comic parody but affectionate and endearing parody with a little actual counselling, or perhaps rather more a group of friends talking with one of their number who had opened up a little. She is a complete one off, catch her if you can.

The first silent film we saw with piano accompaniment was the German monolith (it's a good idea to take sandwiches) Metropolis and the pianist put in two rather good musical jokes. Tomorrow night's film at the Halesworth Cut is the Harold Lloyd comedy Safety Last so accompanist Tom Horton won't need to be funny in his own right.

At the Halesworth Cut last night in front of a good house The Blacksmith Who Chased The Moon is based on a story by 19th century Russian author Nikolai Gogol so not your usual panto then ... but lots of physical stuff from the male actors, some spectacular effects, lots of laughs My father is the Lord Mayor of Southwold ... we are not wealthy and despite the pic a family show. Blacksmith continues at The Cut until Sunday 3rd January.
