THE celebration of art, drama, music and theatre, courtesy of Waveney Revels is still continuing to attract significant interest.

As it enters its fourth week, there is a continuation of walks, talks, wine tasting and many other activities throughout the community revealing the breadth of talent within the area.

The brainchild of Waveney's arts and heritage manager Andrew Kitchen, more than 130 attractions are available, with the aim that it will become an annual tradition.

Today kicks off with five evening events. Juicy Lucy will be performing at the Brewery Tap in Oulton Broad, Dominic Kirwan is at the Marina Theatre in Lowestoft and the Amazing Mr Smith, a juxtaposition of guitar playing and comedy is at Bungay's Fisher Theatre.

The Ferini Gallery at Pakefield welcomes Elisma Allan from the Lowestoft Wine Company with Mediterranean style food provided by Cibo and at Halesworth's Cut, Tom Dale presents a hypnotic, addictive and relentless dance piece underpinned by an electronic soundtrack.

Tomorrow, a wildlife walk starts at Ilketshall St Andrew Church at 11.30am, while John Holmes gives a slide show of war time Lowestoft at the Sparrows Nest. You can also take part in SingalongJoseph at Beccles' Hungate Church while Beccles Choral Society hold their spring concert entitled Beccles 2000, Now and Beyond at St Michaels Church.

Over at Lowestoft, legendary performer Ken Dodd is back at the Marina Theatre and live music from Mark Anthony is at Kessingland's Livingstones pub.

Halesworth and Southwold Classic Vehicle Road Run is leaving the White Hart in the town at 10am among the events on Sunday, ending at Southwold's Pier at around 11.45am and artists are inviting to exhibit along the Boulevard at Oulton Broad.

The complete works of William Shakespeare will be performed in just 97 minutes at Lowestoft's Marina Theatre on Monday as the bard busters invite audience members to join them on a rollercoaster ride of all his work, and at the Swan House in Beccles Big Sister Music will play a tribute to some of the finest singer/songwriters, from Suzanne Vega to Eddie Reader.

Making its East Anglian debut, Dads Army, starring Leslie Grantham comes to the Marina Theatre for five nights starting on Tuesday looking into the misadventures of our Home Guard platoon in their fictional south coast town of Walmington-on-Sea. The production will offer a unique chance to see the lost episodes, which were accidentally erased by the BBC.

Also on Tuesday Lowestoft Porcelain's Paint and Create will be holding a fundraising day in aid of Macmillan Cancer Relief, while at Lowestoft Trinity Methodist Church, Lowestoft Choral Society open rehearsals take place.

Wednesday is St George's Day and Waveney Ramblers will mark it by taking a walk round St Olaves, the Brewery Tap hosts their weekly Battle of the Bands, while a tour of Earsham Hall is available.

And on Thursday there's an opportunity to discover Ness Point - Lowestoft's most easterly place.
