Finals day for the Great Woodbridge Bake Off Series Two saw contestants converge on the town’s Tide Mill Museum on Sunday to present their entries made using flour produced on site last month.

Peter Wright, of the award-winning Cake Shop Bakery in Woodbridge, assisted by his daughter Andrea, judged the best cheese scone, chocolate cake and wholemeal bread.

Nigel Barratt, of the Tide Mill, said: It is always lovely to see people using the Tide Mill flour and this competition has encouraged both young and old to test their skills – it is a testament to all the baking advice given at the Tide Mill bread-making demonstrations by Peter Wright that my fellow volunteer Bob Spillett won first prize for his wholemeal bread.”

Lilly Butler Mayer, 13, won the under-16 category for best overall baker and best cheese scones. Naomi Gornall was judged best overall baker and chocolate cake for over-16s.

Sister Act the musical, coming to the Ipswich Regent October 2016

Hit musical Comedy Sister Act is coming to the Ipswich Regent next year.

Comedian Jimmy Carr, who performed to a sold-out Ipswich Regent last night

No stranger to Ipswich, he brought his Funny Business tour back for a sell-out crowd at the theatre. Understanding on his last visit the crowd were in a non-heckling mood, I was intrigued to know if they would step up their game this time. With a heckle delivered after his first line, this set the tone for the evening nicely.

The Suffolk Young Peoples Theatre who are staging Guys and Dolls at the Theatre Royal, in Bury St Edmunds.

Clever sets and remarkably good Broadway accents have turned Bury’s Theatre Royal into the streets of 1950s New York this week as the Suffolk Young People’s Theatre put on their summer show: Guys and Dolls.

This comic thriller from the writers of TV’s Avengers would probably have a hard time muscling its way into the programme of a West End or regional theatre but for holiday audiences it provides a tart and tasty summer confection.

It’s the fourth time the company have tackled this Shakespearean comedy and it’s my second time seeing them do it. It didn’t lessen my enjoyment.

A warning to other amateur, semi or professional groups - you don’t want to rumble with this cast.

It’s extraordinary how quickly fortunes can change. In 1892 the Bury St Edmunds Theatre Royal hosted the world premiere of one of the great plays of English theatre.
