Normal for Norfolk?

Suddenly it’s all happening up there in Norfolk (image: Quietways Cards)….

-(Could this be the explanation?) It’s been the weekend of the perigee super full moon.

-Air strikes have been launched from RAF Marham, next to Sandringham, which was in the news no more than a week ago for very different reasons.

-Norfolk’s leading jazz critic Bruce Lindsay has pronounced that “this month, there’s nothing wrong with the British jazz scene”. He writes, (in a typically well-informed and interesting piece) : “It’s been a very good year.”

  1. Woo Hoo.
    Belated thanks for this accolade.
    Norfolk's leading jazz critic begs to make it plain that my declaration of a Very Good Year pre-dated the renewed activity at RAF Marham.
    However, Norfolk arts organisations did pretty well out of the Arts Council's funding review. The Norfolk and Norwich Festival was awarded an 87% grant increase – so hopefully its increasingly high class and innovative jazz programming can expand still further. [Charlie Haden, Kyle Eastwood, Gretchen Parlato and the Portico Quartet among others this year – and it isn't even a jazz festival].
