Thomas Easter was born in Aylsham in 1715, was hung 24 years later, but brought back to life in North Lodge Park last night by Stuff of Dreams Theatre Company in a new musical play by Cordelia Spence and Tim Lane.
With thanks to Cordelia, Tim and the cast (Hayley Evenett, Quinn Richards and Gair Madland) for a great evening, and to the audience who made the evening special. A great new play, a great theatre company in a great park.
Watch out for details of Stuff of Dreams Theatre Company coming back next year.
This year we have teamed up again with Coast Arts and Rock the Lobster to bring an Open Mic to the park at the start of Cromer carnival week.
ROCK THE LOBSTER will be in North Lodge Park, Cromer, giving performance artists a chance to perform.
The day is to enable local performers gain experience, improve their skills and, perhaps most importantly, enjoy themselves! There will be 15 minute sessions across the afternoon giving amateur performers a chance to demonstrate their talents and to give novices of all ages an opportunity to shine. If you wish to perform please bring your instrument(s) and back line, if required.
Come along to participate, or just bring a picnic and chill out while supporting the performers.
If you want to book a slot to perform, email firstname.lastname@example.org or just turn up on the day.
ROCK THE LOBSTER is a voluntary group that runs a regular open mic promoting all performing arts (including: live music, poets, magicians, dancers, etc). We are funded entirely by sponsorship and donations. RtL aims to give amateur performers a chance to demonstrate their talents and to give novices and children a go. This enables local performers to gain experience, improve their skills and, perhaps most importantly, enjoy themselves! Please check rockthelobster.com for details.
The Crab and Lobster Festival is holding its annual art trail…this year the theme is lighthouses. One of our lovely volunteers, Barbara Swarbrick, has designed and painted this beautiful one for the cafe.
Barbara studied art & design in the 1960s, went to Australia in the early 1970s and made her living from ceramic art and design for over 30 years. Her starting point for this work is the glamour, style and opulence of the Liners sailing the world in the years 1920 – 1950. There are also references to the North Lodge Park Tea Rooms where she works as a volunteer.
Our lovely lighthouse sits alongside the porthole and beach hut our previous entries.
