So, last week I went to Suffolk for the first time in over a decade, and really enjoyed it.

I think at heart I am a country bloke – well, a country town bloke at least. I think being completely away from amenities would probably send me slightly barmy, but the quiet peacefulness of life in partly rural areas holds great allure. And Suffolk is certainly rural.


Sweeney Todd at the Adelphi Theatre Review

I was initially slightly wary going to see Sweeney Todd at the theatre. I hadn’t seen the films, and knew, deep down, that I had a fear of shaving going horribly wrong. This, allied with throats and a demonic barber, meant that I was more than a touch reticent to witness rubies falling from razors.
