Latitude: Kevin Bridges review

22:44 20 July 2014

Latitude Festival 2014

Latitude Festival 2014


Scottish independence was on the cards as Kevin Bridges headlined the Comedy Arena.

Commenting on the middle class status of the festival, a common theme in the arena, he told everyone about his toughest gigs, the most difficult being the time he stood up in a prison, where a prisoner walked out after five minutes.

On the topic of independence, Bridges said that England should have a vote first to see what they want, as that will decide what the Scots do, as they would do the opposite.

He also spoke about the time he was heckled by someone who didn’t appreciate him saying hello to him, before a fan of Bridges stood up for him. A member of the audience, John Latitude, had an answer for the questions Bridges asked him, with Bridges saying he would get him next year.

From the applause he got at the end of his show, he’d certainly be welcomed back to Henham Park again.

This year’s attention-grabbing Spill Festival of Performance will be unleashed across Ipswich next week with more than 100 events being staged across Suffolk’s county town, stretching from Christchurch Park to The Waterfront.

It’s nearly Halloween and there is a variety of events across Suffolk this half term to keep your little monsters entertained no matter what their age.

The only place for scary clowns is on stage says Circus of Horror’s evil ringmaster Dr John Haze.

Stormtroopers marched the streets of Bury St Edmunds this weekend as Moyse’s Hall unveiled its acclaimed annual science fiction exhibition.

Arthur Ransome’s tales of boats and adventure - many of which were set in Suffolk - changed the course of children’s literature.

Hundreds of youngsters braved the cold October temperatures to celebrate all things autumn at the Holywells Park Apple Day.

Although I’m a fan of the show Spamalot - I went to see the touring production at the Regent five years ago - I have to admit I only wanted to see the Company of Four’s version as my cousin Jo is in it (very good as a sweary minstrel, I have to say!)

Looking for something to do this half-term and Halloween? We have some ideas.

Ruth Madoc didn’t have to look too far for inspiration for her role as the steely matron with a heart of gold in the play Be My Baby. She talks to entertainment writer Wayne Savage about her influential mother and her early childhood in East Anglia.

This weekend sees two of the county’s leading arts organisations coming together to stage three days of music and dance. Andrew Clarke, our arts editor, talks to choreographer Richard Alston, who will be premiering a new piece inspired by his great hero: Suffolk composer Benjamin Britten
