Syzewell Gap Ceilidh
Saturday 25 June 7.30 – 10 pm
In the week of the summer solstice, we will be drawing our trail to a close with a celebratory ceilidh in Potton Hall’s wonderful recording barn overlooking the beautiful wildflower meadow and the views beyond.
Dance the evening away on Saturday 25 June to the infectious rhythms and tunes of Syzewell Gap, one of the region’s foremost ceilidh bands. Experienced and enthusiastic Norwich based caller Jon Hooton will lead everyone through the dances. The band plays British and European traditional music with an East Anglian flavour.
To make it even more of a special evening, the yurt café will serve a bistro-style menu from 6pm onwards – booking essential at www.potton-hall.co.uk – but if you prefer, you may bring your own food to share at the picnic tables outside the barn.
The barn has its own bar which will be open from the start of the ceilidh, but again you may bring your own refreshments.

Arc of the Sky – Competition!
Tickets are now on sale for this 2 July Voice Project choir performance at Blythburgh church – two shows, 6pm and 8pm (book at www.voiceproject.co.uk). Meanwhile, here is the history of the association between the choir and Waveney & Blyth Arts. And the competition…
When covid trashed the planned Arc of the Sky show in 2020, the Voice Project rehearsed and recorded the choir online and made a film. Whet your appetite for the show and limber up for the competition by watching the film. You’ll find it on Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0uQagXZlMA) and on the choir website (https://www.voiceproject.co.uk/arc-of-the-sky-film-2020).
Suitably inspired by this, submit your entry for our competition. A poem, short prose, a drawing or a painting – anything you can email us to email@example.com. The competition is open to everyone and the closing date is 30 June 2022.
And the prize…
If you’re familiar with Blythburgh church, you will know it has angels in the roof. And Cindy Lee Wright will be featuring angels in this year’s Sculpture in the Valley (Potton Hall, 27 May-26 June). Indeed some of her angels may show up in the church. But in any case we are offering one as the prize in our Arc of the Sky competition.
