Truly authentic and stunningly realistic Bill Lennon captured the sounds and music of Nobel Peace Prize winner Bob Dylan.

And with his talented four-piece band they produced a magical show which was enthusiastically supported by a near full house.

The fun packed night took place at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds, on July 28.

The show had up to 350 songs from 37 studio albums it was hard to pick a set but there were true classics like “Blowin’ In The Wind”, “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door”, “The Times They Are A-Changin’”, “All Along The Watchtower”, “Mr Tambourine Man”, “I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight” and “Lay, Lady, Lay”.

In all they performed 25 songs in a 90-mintue set which included an encore of “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright” and “Like A Rolling Stone”.

And all captured with visual imagery from Dylan’s 1960s heyday.

It was a show to remember for those attending.

Eastern Angles Christmas show has a reputation for creating affectionate spoofs of cultural classics. Arts editor Andrew Clarke spoke to producer Tim Bell about having fun with The Ladykillers.

DanceEast commissioned a real Christmas treat from choreographer Jane Hackett when they asked her to develop her idea of turning Mary Norton’s much-loved children’s novel The Borrowers into a dance-theatre production.

The Ladykillers is one of British cinema’s golden classics – an Ealing comedy that appears to be rosy on the outside but as soon as you dig beneath the surface its humour is as black as coal. This Christmas Eastern Angles and Shanty Theatre have decided to give this dark caper movie a modern and a local make-over.

If you haven’t sent Santa your Christmas list yet, pop tickets for this festive-fuelled fairytale on it first.

It’s not Christmas without a visit to Red Rose Chain’s The Avenue Theatre. We spoke to writer and director Joanna Carrick and actors Emma Swan, Darren Latham and Ryan Penny about The Elves and The Shoemaker.

A great panto starts from the moment the audience enters the auditorium and starts looking at the set laid out before it. Arts editor Andrew Clarke talks to designer David Shields about the art of creating a larger-than-life panto world

Charlotte Smith-Jarvis says Greg Davies, live in Ipswich as part of the You Magnificent Beast tour, is one of the funniest stand-ups she’s seen.
