I am always surprised when people talk about Suffolk as a sleepy quiet place. My own experience is that on any given night I have to choose between events to go to and wonderful experiences to have. I personally lean towards folk and acoustic music, but I try as many different genres as I can and have noticed that when I chat to people at folk clubs, they are just as open. This past weekend I have loved the variety on offer and have been to two events I feel inspired to write about.
Friday 8th March 2019 marked International Women’s Day and there were a number of events going on around Suffolk to mark the occasion. I took myself off to the John Peel Centre in Stowmarket where the Soapbox was hosting an evening of performance, poetry and debate.
