The Next Room - ADC Theatre.

Wow! What a great play....

I was unsure if to put this in the bulletin or not since the alternative title is 'The Vibrator Play'.

Well I'm glad I did. Set in the 1850s a true story of a therapist using intresting methods. In the next room his wife sad and lacking love but not knowing it. It was a great portrail of what people believed in that time.

One of the best plays I've seen and so well performed, could these be future top actors...

Everyone that was there said how good it was.

Next on 8th June is Evita. Very different but should be good.

Helmingham Hall Plant Fair with Artisan Market

There were plenty of interesting artisan stalls, stands of colourful plants and even a Lindy Hop dance demo to watch when Cambridgeshire IVC joined Suffolk IVC for their day out at Helmingham Hall, east of Stowmarket today. We also wandered round the beautiful grounds at the Hall and found some tasty lavender flavoured ice cream to try.  The warm sunny weather attracted a huge number of  visitors to the event.

Sunny Summer Evening Walk

Thursday saw us meet at the Plough at Fen Ditton for a walk alongside the River Cam to Baits Bite lock.  The round route proved tricky as the path has already become overgrown, however that was a sign of the effect of the glorious weather we had to enjoy whilst walking.  We finished the evening with refreshments in The Plough before heading home.

A Visit to Beautiful Open Gardens

Wandering round the National Gardens Scheme open gardens in Chaucer Road, in Cambridge, was a lovely relaxing way to spend the Bank Holiday, afternoon.  The gardens were colourful with a wide variety of trees, shrubs and plants on display and one of the garden owners chatted to us about her garden.  As it wasn't as hot as last year, when we bought ice creams to cool us down, we  drank tea and ate yummy cakes instead.
