Wrong film, right idea
Remember those classic films about the RAF during the war, with their scenes in the local pub, pints in handle glasses, the pretty barmaid or WAAF girl, Kenneth More and his wingman winking at them through the pipe smoke? On Tue 5 June, except for the pipe smoke, the Carpenter’s Arms in Wighton is hosting an evening of dinner and jazz titled, ‘A Time to Remember’ celebrating the 100thanniversary of the RAF. On a similar wartime theme, ‘Darkest Hour’ the film is on in Hunstanton and the new film of the remarkable book, ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society’, is on screen at the Sheringham Little Theatre. Meanwhile, or just before, The Wells Walsingham Light Railway holds its annual ‘Wells at War’ weekend, with a vintage Hurricane fly past on Sun 3 June.
Those crazy Creakers are at it again
The Creakes Drama Group, CDG, (they couldn’t call it the Creakes Amateur Dramatic Society) celebrates its 20thanniversary with a revue of their greatest hits. Starts Thu 7 June in the eponymous North Creake Village Hall and runs over the weekend. Expect some ‘Allo, Allo’, ‘My Fair Lady’ and ‘Chicago’ as well as sure to be utterly politically incorrect – but then it is the Creakes – Peter Cook and Dudley Moore and Two Ronnies sketches. Local ‘amdram’ at its finest and funniest.
Let me show you my normal garden, Desmond McCarthy
They’re blooming and blooming. The delightful garden of the Merchant’s House in Blakeney, on the High Street, opens it castilian gates to the public for one day a year on Sun 3 June. You will be amazed what green spaces hide behind the walls that line that narrow street. Along the coast road Desmond McCarthy – yes him off the telly, ‘Normal’ to you – kicks off his garden tours of Wiveton Hall on Tue 5 June. And the village of Stanhoe (nice pub, lovely chef, seriously, he’s special) opens all its gardens – well a good few – on Sat 2 June.
