The BBs Play Banham, and Hang Out With Vintage Cars - 2nd June 2007

The BBs - the band Nosher is in - play for Diss High School's leaving ball in Banham. It's the equivalent of the US-style "prom", and in keeping with the event, many stretch-limos, ballgowns and tuxedos are hired. There are however one or two more unique vehicles present, including a 1912 Cadillac, driven by Jo (the singer's) dad, and a rather nice Aston-Martin DB6 Vantage. Mmmm. Meanwhile, before all of that, there's something strange going down in Diss: Vikings in a boat are spotted roaming up Mere Street, and there's a choir outside Diss Publishing. However, no-one seems to know exactly why any of this stuff is occuring.
