2.30pm & 7.30pm Suffolk Libraries Presents: Reasons to be Cheerful - A raucous musical featuring the hits of Ian Dury and the Blockheads

Amazing recorded theatrical production

Celebrating the infectious music of Ian Dury and the Blockheads, “Reasons to be Cheerful” is a punk rock musical and gritty coming of age tale, which always leaves audiences shouting for more.

It’s 1979: Labour loses to the Tories, strikes rock the nation and Ian Dury and the Blockheads’ Reasons to be Cheerful (Part 3) climbs the charts.

As the ultimate fans, Vinnie and his mates would do anything to see Dury at the Hammersmith Odeon, only the gig is sold out. But life has a habit of throwing strange things at you, and one night of frustration becomes something else entirely...

Ages 14+ - Tickets £10 - Available from Southwold Library & Southwold Arts Centre

2.00pm Meet Local Author - Franky Sayer

Born in Felixstowe, Franky moved to North Suffolk as a small child. She still lives close to the Norfolk/Suffolk border, with her husband, John, and their yellow Labrador, Boris.

Her hobbies include music, roller skating, dressmaking, walking her dog in the countryside, and reading.

Franky is a member of the Waveney Author Group.

In her latest book “The PepperAsh Clinch” a line of revellers, wending their drunken conga from the opening night party at The Fighting Cock, are brought to a sudden halt when their barbecue explodes. Nora Stickleback struggles to manage the pub, control her alcoholic husband and keep her son away from temptation, when she suddenly finds herself with two extra teenagers to look after. Henry Stickleback nurses two passions, one for young Rosalie, the other for browsing car boot sales.

Meanwhile Quinny is haunted by a childhood memory and a habit he started in order to break an obsession.

Come and hear about Franky’s writing, getting published and her latest work.
