A SINGING farmer begins a varied seven days of entertainment at the Seagull Theatre in Pakefield tonight.

Winston the Singing Farmer has a huge reputation for his comic and topical songs, and will be performing at 7.30pm.

Tomorrow at 7.30pm, Black Ram Theatre Company presents Tom Stoppard's take on Hamlet. This innovative production utilises dance, carnival grotesques and live music to show a comic side to Shakespeare's tragedy.

On Sunday at 7.45pm the theatre hosts its first poetry and song event, as a dozen local poets and singer/songwriters perform.

The John Whitehead Trio, comprising piano, double bass and drums, bring their jazz sound to the theatre on Thursday at 7.30pm. For this concert the trio are joined by vocalist Sally Voakes, whose natural approach is strongly reminiscent of Sarah Vaughn.

Looking ahead, the theatre will welcome Seabright Productions next Friday for Nun the Wiser. The show is based on the true story of Triona Adams, a theatrical agent who spent a year in an enclosed Benedictine order. Sister Triona recounts the bittersweet, comic story of a modern woman answering 'the Call' and reveals what really goes on under the habit.

On Sunday, May 9, it welcomes the VE Day tribute show Songs of Victory. The show, by Plexious Productions, pays tribute to the popular songs of the time, as well as sketches and poems that played a big part in keeping up the morale of those serving abroad and everyone at home.

The show will be put on at 3.30pm and 7.30pm and 10pc of ticket sales will be donated to the Help for Heroes charity.
