A peaceful but talkative invasion force from Norfolk will be heading for Lowestoft on Sunday.

Keith Skipper, stalwart defender of Nelson’s County, and his Missionaries of Mirth will be staging their We Come In Peace show at the Marina Theatre from 2.15pm

The subjects covered are likely to include the prospect of Norfolk dumping its waste in Suffolk following the scrapping of an incinerator, the war of words over having a joint police force and the relative fortunes of the twon counties’ football clubs – including a celebration of Lowestoft Town’s promotion success, as well as this year’s disappointments for the Canaries and Tractor Boys.

Keith said: “Norfolk and Suffolk share a precious ability to laugh at themselves as well as at each other. That should make it real fun to pop over the border and put that theory to the test.”

Today and tomorrow is the last chance for film lovers to see Rio 2 (U) and Spiderman 2 (12A) on the big screen at the Marina.

On Sunday evening the Marina big screen will be showing the National Theatre’s production of Mark Haddon’s play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

Then on Wednesday evening, the play Driving Miss Daisy, starring Angela Lansbury and James Earl Jones, will be screened. The production was filmed at The Comedy Theatre, Melbourne, Australia in 2013. It will be followed by a screening of a question and answer session with Ms Lansbury.
