Somewhere you should go…Suffolk
Suffolk used to be completely off my radar, but now the quaint seaside county is a place I’d highly recommend - especially the Southwalds area. They’ve got a lovely series of festivals running from now until September (including the Latitude for Arts and Music and Harvest at Jimmy Farm) and you can learn more about the events at festivalssuffolk.com.

Somewhere you should go…East End Film Festival
This kicks off this week and I attended the press launch a month ago to see what it was all about (there was free Cranberry juice too, you know I’m never mad at that). SO I learned that the festival was in its ninth year, it’d be offering “a diverse and dynamic programme of films” and the opening film had Bullfrog in the title (?)
(Quick check of the film programme)
Ah, Correction. That’s Bronco Bullfrog, a cult classic from 1969. Never heard of it, and if you have, then go knock yourself on Thursday :-) Tell me what it’s saying too.
Personally, the fests highlights for me will be the outdoor screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s silent film The Lodger accompanied by a live band on Saturday, April 24th. It’s free too! High-five! Yea!
There’s also the premiere of The Rime of The Modern Mariner on Friday, April 23rd, which will feature a performance/party with Carl Barat (Libertines) at St Anne’s Church in Limehouse. Not my thing, but it could be yours.
Lastly, there’s a screening of SUS on April 24th, a film based on the “stop and search” law and will include a Q&A afterwards with Stephen Lawrence’s mom Doreen and the QC on the Lawrence case. This should be good.
The festival runs from April 22-30th and for more info visit www.eastendfilmfestival.com

Somewhere you should go…I only recently learned that there was a farm in Hackney (of all places lol). Truthfully, it’s nothing to shout about (kids will be easily impressed), but for a cheap date? Heck yea! Chickens to the left, pigs in the middle and try not the step on the ducks. Oh, and the goats look like they’re plotting a revolution. Just look at ‘em.
