AS we head into Autumn and the nights draw in it’s time to pick up The Cut brochure and see what treats we have in store.

November sees the hugely popular Herring Festival, November 2nd-3rd, a weekend of events for all the family with music, words and plays, all about the humble herring. Come along for a taste – in every sense - of the glory days of the Suffolk fishing industry and the annual autumn harvest of North Sea herring by Suffolk drifters manned by Suffolk men in jerseys and oilies. While herring isn’t as familiar an item on the menu as it once was, you probably know whitebait,

which is

simply the herring young. There’ll be a day-long outdoor barbecue of fresh caught North Sea herring & bloaters, as well as the chance to try the famous Dutch soused herring (maatjes haring). The weekend sees the return of the hugely popular Pearls from The Grit from Dean Parkin about a long-lost easterly fishing community.

are hoping to raise £100,000 in our 2020 Vision appeal. We’ve been bowled over by the response from our audiences and community. We’re thrilled to say that we have reached 50% which is an amazing feat! Up to 1000 people a week use The Cut and that’s a lot of wear and tear. There are regular classes/workshops for art and drawing, photography and photoshop, science, ballet and

dance, creative writing

and poetry, Pilates, yoga and qi gong, and performing arts for young people. The Cut is also a regular venue for U3A activities so we need to make it a robust home for another 20 years! To donate go to www.

Leiston Panto Tickets in Big Demand

Management at Leiston Film Theatre are urging panto-goers to buy their tickets before it’s too late, as the venue makes final preparations, ahead of their next traditional family pantomime at the Leiston Film Theatre between in January. Goldilocks

and the Three

Bears appears live on stage at the 105-year-old venue on Thursday 16th, Friday 17th, Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th January, with demand for tickets so high, that seats for some performances are already limited, with over 1,000 tickets already sold.

The Pantomime has been written by Wayne Burns and Stephen Ginger, who between them have over 30 years of Pantomime behind them. The show is being brought to the stage under Wayne's 'Team B Productions' title - a group of experienced am-dram performers, many of which have previously appeared on the Film Theatre stage and whose previous sell-out successes have included shows at Leiston Film Theatre and at the Spa Pavilion Theatre in Felixstowe. The group have ambitious plans to develop further and are promising another fun-filled family pantomime, packed to the panto brim with lots of slapstick family fun, toe-tapping tunes and a huge helping of audience participation, as they tell the beloved tale of Goldilocks – a story that unfolds in the Pantoland village of Hump-on- the-Hill and sees Goldilocks venturing into the woods, where she encounters Mummy, Daddy and Baby Bear when she

stumbles across their woodland home.

When the wicked Ringmaster plots to capture the furry family and make them the stars of his Circus, it's up to Goldilocks, Silly Billy and even Dame Trump to come to the rescue. Film Theatre manager and Pantomime director, Wayne Burns, is looking forward to returning to the stage. “We are immensely proud of this Pantomime and the entire cast can’t wait to bring our brilliant script to life on stage and perform for such appreciative crowds. Our audiences are in for a real treat, plus one or two surprises along the way” he said.

The Pantomime sees renowned Suffolk musician Tom Horton returning as the musical director and the energetic students from the Coral Stebbings School of Theatre Dance will be making a welcome return to the stage, as part of the Pantomime extravaganza. Goldilocks

and the Three

Bears will be appearing live at the Leiston Film Theatre on Thursday 16th (7.30pm), Friday 17th (7.30pm), Saturday 18th (3.00pm and 7.30pm) and Sunday 19th (11am & 3pm) January. Limited tickets are now available, priced £15.95, £14.95 and £13.95, with £1.00 off all tickets for the opening night (Thursday 16th January).
