HIP hop, local history, comedy and Sherlock Holmes are all on the agenda at the Seagull Theatre, in Pakefield, this coming week.

The discs will be spinning and the needles scratching tonight when Free as a Bird present their second hip-hop night, Step to Mic.

Featuring artists DJ Kura, Mr Morph, Inzaine and Majestic Movement, there will also be an open mic session, beginning at 6.30pm with tickets £2 on the door.

Tomorrow the venue presents the embodiment of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's creation Sherlock Holmes in the Death and Life.

After his international success in Sherlock Holmes, the Last Act, Roger Llewellyn returns in a new spine-tingling play.

A fantasy based upon a fiction finds Conan Doyle tiring of his “intoler-ably arrogant Sherlock Holmes”, and inventing the malevolent Moriarty to dispose of him.

Next Friday, June 12, respected historian John Holmes will be welcomed back to the theatre to present his journey through Lowestoft's rich history over the last 100 years.

The show will take audiences through the first world war, the fishing industry, then through to the 1960s, over the bridge to Kirkley, Pakefield and a few adverts of yesteryear. The story will continue in the second half with views of Pakefield, the second world war and a selection of post-war views.

Mr Holmes has not only researched local history in great depth and collected an amazing number of slides, pictures and other graphic memorabilia, he has personal memories and experience of much of the subject of his presentation.

The following evening, the LaurieLorry Theatre Company and Makin Projects present Gusset, written and performed by Elaine Pantling.

The one-woman comedy show tells the story of Pauline Potter who has worked in a factory for more than 20 years. Feeling trapped, she learns to be a writer at night school and with her new book Gusset Path to Life believes anything is possible.

Tickets are £7 and it starts at 7.30pm on Saturday, June 13.

To book tickets for all shows, telephone the box office on 01502 589726.
