DULCET acoustic tones, a walk through history, a Jane Austen masterpiece and a right royal romp are top of the bill at the Seagull Theatre, in Pakefield, this coming week.

It kicks off tonight with Ivan Bunn, who presents his new show Relentless Waves, the first in a local history series planned for the venue.

Using old photos, maps and contemporary accounts, Ivan will present the intriguing story of Lowestoft's fight against the sea during the 19th and 20th centuries.

Tomorrow evening one of Jane Austen's most ingenious novels is being performed by the Black Ram Theatre Company.

Northanger Abbey centres on the life and times of Catherine Morland, a young girl filled with naivety and a vivid imagination.

Acoustic folk favourites John Ward and Mario Price are returning to the venue on Sunday evening, fusing their mix of John's original compositions and traditional songs with Mario's energetic instrumen-tals.

John said: “The Seagull Theatre is special to Mario and I as it's the venue of our first real gig together as a newly formed duo back in 1990.”

Earlier on in the day a free Smokin Mics improvisation workshop is taking place, between 2 and 4pm. It's an opportunity to learn some techniques of quick comedy from professionals.

On Monday, students from the Queen Mary University of London present The End of Innocence, a trio of original and provocative performances of activism,

focusing on relationships, sex and gender.

The programme for this coming week concludes on Thursday with the play Mad and Merry Monarchs, brought to the theatre in Morton Road by the Mad Dogs and Englishmen Theatre Company.

For tickets call the box office on 01502 589726.
