Ministry Bans Frivolous Biscuits

Audiences in Breckland have been delighted by the Ministry of Biscuits, a tongue in cheek musical comedy set in a 1984-esque world of repressed biscuits. Performed by The Foundry Group, the  show toured the district's libraries for a one off week of matinees in Watton, Dereham, Attleborough, Thetford and Swaffham. 

The hilarious script, catchy songs and array of costumes, captivated audiences into the story of Cecil Hobson, a junior biscuit designer who succumbs to moral corruption and dabbles in creating a decadent triple chocolate ginger nut cream surprise...

'Drop in & Stitch' at Mattishall

Mattishall's artist in residence Lisa Little has been holding a series of 'Drop in & Stitch' workshops at the Memorial Hall, with villagers sharing stories about Mattishall over a cup of tea and some sweet treats. Lisa has encouraged participants to jot down memories relating to village life in a note book, from which she has selected prominent stories to embroider onto tea towels. Some have chosen to do their own embroidery or have used fabric pens to put down their designs. 

As well as recalling skills that haven't been used for years, the sessions have allowed participants to engage over a shared topic - Mattishall - and learn much about each other in the process. The sessions continue this week at Mattishall Memorial Hall, drop in between 10:30 - 4pm and leave a lasting memory of the village in Lisa's journal. All events are free and everyone is welcome!
