After the sunshine and warmth of the previous night's 'L'elisir d'amore' the Glyndebourne Tour could not have provided more by way of contrast.
Glyndebourne Tour in Norwich last night gave me the opportunity to immerse myself for two and a half hours in Italian operatic sunshine, whilst the rest of Norwich shivered in the dark and the cold outside.
Northern Ballet are always eagerly awaited visitors to the Theatre Royal, both for their full productions and for their wonderful child-friendly shows (they return in April 2020 with a special version of Little Red Riding Hood). We now have October 2020 to look forward to, and their return with an exciting new production – Merlin
As a writer myself, I found her anecdotes and stories inspirational

This production left me wondering at my appraisal of the earlier work.
Norfolk & Norwich Festival hits gold, once more, with a magic show performed in the hundred-year-old Spiegeltent
Bells and Spells is an episodic, hallucinogenic journey through increasingly loopy vignettes drawn from Chaplin’s weird and wonderful imagination.
If there was a magic button at the moment of your death, would you delete your online history or keep it and leave the choice to someone else?
The resultant 60 minute show is a kaleidoscopic and psychedelic delight from start to end.
