Week Commencing 9th September

Sunday 15th Sept- Toast- Norwich Arts Centre

Norwich Arts Centre is back open (as are all the Theatres) and it mean this blog can get back to business. So we start this week with an evening of poetry at the arts centre. Hosted by Lewis Buxton this promises to be an accepting evening of poetry and spoken word. To open the new season we have author of While I Yet Live and UEA graduate Gboyega Odubanjo.

Yet the headliner for this weeks evening is none other than Laurie Bolger, an English poet from London who in 2014 was shortlisted for Young Poet Laureate. Known for touring and her sense of humour her writing brings lightness to dark with plenty of London influences. I’m sure she will be performing works from her collection Box Rooms (available from her website if you want a copy) which I would highly recommend.

For anyone who thinks that poetry is not accessible the arts centre is here to prove you wrong. For any budding writers there is also a workshop with Laurie earlier in the day. What makes the art centre even more special is the pay what you can afford price tag (minimum £6 for this event), and the 5 free tickets open to those on benefits they give away, means there is no excuse not to enjoy an evening of poetry right in the heart of the city.

One to Watch

Tues 10th Sept- Shakers- St Georges Theatre, Great Yarmouth

This week over in Great Yarmouth we find ourselves back in 1985 in a not so chic London bar called Shakers. The play centres around four waitresses all suffering the general pressures of life. This play written as a sister to piece to Bouncers (which St Georges put on last September) is a satirical look at the desperation that unemployment can cause as the women are forced into waitressing.

The play with a cast of only the 4 women allows the women to play not only their main parts but also the parts of the colourful chatacters that frequent Shakers. This evening promises to be an evening of hilarious and depraved feminist entertainment so a great way to spend a Tuesday night.

Worth a Mention

Sun 10th Sept- An Evening of Jazz and Cabaret- Norwich Playhouse

Only worth a mention because as I write this it’s nearly sold out. If you fancy an evening a little louder than poetry then the Playhouse has you covered with an evening that does exactly as it says on the tin. They have a Quintet, jazz guitarist/comedian, Italian Vocalist and a local singer all to liven up your Sunday night. Also all profits from this show will be split between  two breast cancer charities Breast Cancer Now and Keeping Abreast. So if you fancy being entertained whilst helping a good cause Playhouse has you covered.
