20/07/2020 – Walks, Comedy, Quiz Time…

Quiz time, walks and comedy on my weekly creative catch-up with Jon Wright :)

Here are the details and links to the information I will be chatting about in my ‘Creative Catch-up’ on BBC Radio Suffolk with @JournoJon tonight :)

Suffolk Steps…

Check out the collaborative project Suffolk Steps between Keep Moving Suffolk and the Association for Suffolk Museums

An perfect excuse to get out an about on your Suffolk staycation, why not grab a camera, a sketch pad or a notebook & pen… head off for a walk and capture the inspiring things that you discover.

Suffolk Steps is a collection of local historic walks and trails developed by museums and partners throughout Suffolk. The free walks are designed to help all ages stay active and uncover Suffolk’s hidden history from the lost city of Dunwich, to the largest Millennium Green in England.

Comedy from home…

Some of the areas of the creative industries that have been hardest hit during lockdown have been those that rely on an audience in a theatre or indoor space. The kind of places that are completely opposite to everything that society is trying to achieve with social distancing.

I have been enjoying my weekly (now monthly) visits to the #CovidArms. An LIVE online comedy night, hosted by the brilliant Kiri Pritchard-McLean, offering a wide range of household names and new faces to our virtual comedic experience.

There is now a new one on Thursday nights, with Jason Manford creating an online offering of comedy ‘Manfords Comedy Club’ for us to enjoy. Can’t wait to see who and what we get to see at this new gig :)
