Hooray for Houghton

The last day of Houghton Revisited and we would like to thank not only the Marquis of Cholmondeley for  arranging and putting on this stunning exhibition but also the marvellous volunteers for their enthusiasm and guidance. We also thank Houghton for their  website which had an excellent accommodation list which provided information to visitors from afar and provided business to local establishments throughout Norfolk.


Swan Lake

Saw a thrilling performance of Mathew Bourne's Swan Lake last night at the Theatre Royal Norwich. So original and entertaining, we loved it.



Following on from my last blog re the non event of St. Jude,  I can report that the storm had an affect on the recent book launch of Simon Thurley's The Building of England held in the town hall at Kings Lynn (surely the most stunning of town halls in the country). It was the first book launch that I have attended where there were actually no books. This, it was revealed was not due to a mishap by the publisher or indeed the author, but to St Jude. The books, printed in China were on their way to this country when they met the storm which blew all the containers into the sea, the bottom of which they  are now lying.
