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.

The New Wolsey Theatre’s Young Company is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. Arts editor Andrew Clarke spoke to associate director Rob Salmon about the opportunities theatre can offer to youngsters

There are other places than Swansea Tubbs, no matter what Edward says - and you’ll get to see them when The League of Gentlemen Live Again comes to the Ipswich Ipswich Regent.

There’ll be no trip to Neverland for Ray Quinn this Christmas, after he had to pull out of Clacton’s Princes Theatre panto Peter Pan.

Youthful rebellion is nothing new, Teddy, a new high energy musical from Snapdragon Productions and Watermill Theatre, explodes onto the New Wolsey stage telling the story of Josie and Teddy and the social forces which shaped the teenage revolution and post-war Britain.

Tickets are still available for a fundraising evening at the Theatre Royal, in Bury St Edmunds, aimed at boosting the funds of the Every Heart Matters appeal.

Outrageous, inappropriate and downright hilarious - this is possibly the funniest show I have ever seen at the Theatre Royal.

Shakespeare’s Macbeth has been transformed into an atmospheric piece of dance theatre. Arts editor Andrew Clarke spoke to choreographer Mark Bruce about his love of classic theatre and how dance can re-imagine how see familiar stories

Wolf Hall, the story of Thomas Cromwell and Henry VIII, is one of great historical dramas of recent years. Arts Editor Andrew Clarke talks to director James Hayward about the Gallery Players regional premiere and how they have brought Wolsey back home
