Organisers of a fireworks evening in east Suffolk say they will be providing a “memorable display complete with some unique effects”.

Framlingham Town Council is holding this year’s Firework Spectacular at Pageant Field from 6pm on Saturday, November 8.

Kimbolton Fireworks will be returning to the event after several years of absence to provide “high quality fireworks suitable for all the family”.

There will be a designated area for sparklers and refreshments on sale, including mulled wine, Earl Soham beer burgers, hot dogs, candy floss and speciality coffee.

The Moving Place fish and chips company will also be on site and Framlingham Guides will be providing hot and cold drinks.

Advanced discounted tickets, costing £5 for adults and £2.50 for children are available from the Town Council office in Riverside on weekdays. Tickets are also available from Bulstrodes in Bridge Street.

Tickets on the night cost £6 for adults and £4 for children.

Gates open at 6pm, the bonfire is to be lit at 6.30pm and the firework display begins at 7.30pm.

All profits from the event will support the town council to fund improvement projects at the Pageant Field. caption

  • Where, pray, is Framlingham? Oh yes, near Earl Soham! And nobody knows where Earl Soham is, especially the people of Soham.

Although I’m a fan of the show Spamalot - I went to see the touring production at the Regent five years ago - I have to admit I only wanted to see the Company of Four’s version as my cousin Jo is in it (very good as a sweary minstrel, I have to say!)

Ruth Madoc didn’t have to look too far for inspiration for her role as the steely matron with a heart of gold in the play Be My Baby. She talks to entertainment writer Wayne Savage about her influential mother and her early childhood in East Anglia.

Will Featherstone as Dan and Gwen Taylor as Mrs Bramson in Night Must Fall at the New Wolsey Theatre

Night Must Fall is a delicious, atmospheric contradiction. Written in 1934, it is clearly a product of its times. A world of faded wealth and privilege has been preserved in aspic in this lonely house on the edge of an isolated wood – and yet this is a psychological thriller with a very contemporary feel.

Kerry Ellis and Norman Bowman in Murder Ballad at The Arts Theatre in London's West End

For Suffolk-born West End star Kerry Ellis life at the moment spins from one extreme to another. One moment she is on stage with rock legend Brian May acknowledging a standing ovation at the end of another sell-out concert and the next she is changing the nappy of ten month old son Freddie or collecting his three year old brother Alfie from play group.
