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.

Some People Talk About Violence, Pulse Festival, New Wolsey Theatre 2016

It was a story of family, heartbreak, guilt and frustration, all wrapped up in chaos.

Tonight I'm Goin To Be Ther New Me, Pulse Festival, New Wolsey Theatre 2016

For the first 10 minutes of Made in China’s ‘Tonight I’m Gonna Be the New Me’, its solo performer and co-creator, Jessica Latowicki undertakes a highly energetic dance/aerobic exercise routine. We don’t know who she is, what this dance means (rage/frustration/excitement?), or whether it will last for the entire 65 minutes (unlikely though given its energy). She then stops, faces us, smiles and says in a broad American accent that she is dedicating the dance to us. A slightly tense audience chuckles and visibly relaxes.

How do we decide who’s a good migrant and who’s a bad immigrant?

Once a Co-op Junior always a Co-op Junior. Renowned Royal Ballet Star Gary Avis talks to entertainment writer Wayne Savage about how the group took a bullied young boy and helped turn him into the man he is today.

Royal Ballet star Gary Avis has a deep and abiding love for Suffolk. He tells arts editor Andrew Clarke that after nearly 30 years on stage his dancing career is far from over and he is looking for new challenges

Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey in the 1987 film Dirty Dancing

It would take a phenomenal effort to produce a bad Dirty Dancing show. The 1987 coming-of-age drama is ripe for any interpretation: iconic music, a timeless script, a clear story with emotional depth, relatable characters and well-defined goals, and of course, some pretty captivating dancing.

I don’t really like farce, with the exception of Peepolkus’ Spyski (or The Importantance of Being Earnest) and this by Michael Frayn. The clever construction, conceit and execution of both - albeit in different ways - wins me over every time.

Robin KIngsland, Olivia Onyehara, Krissi Bohn, Pete Ashmore in Private Lives by Noel Coward at the Colchester Mercury

It is doubtful if Coward would like this version of the rather good play he dashed off in three days while suffering flu in Shanghai in the 1930s. Director Esther Richardson has set out to give it a more modern feel without interfering too much with the text and in this she has largely succeeded.

There’ll be no time to sleep, never mind perchance to dream for those taking part in Red Rose Chain’s 25-hour Shakespeareathon.
