The BBs with Ed Sheeran, Fred's Haircut, and East Lane, Diss, Ipswich and Bawdsey - 21st February 2010

It's time for Fred to lose his "Einstein hair" and get the hair he's had since birth trimmed to more sensible proportions at Antonio Giovanni in Ipsich, for a bit of a family haircut. Then, the following weekend or so, The BBs are headlining a gig at the Corn Hall in Diss, where one of the support acts is a young Ed Sheeran. It's part of a sequence of events re-launching the place as a bit of a venue, and while at first we're a bit worried that the large-but-young crowd might all bugger off after Ed Sheeran and Vanilla kick/These Ghosts, who are about a third the collective age of the BBs, it turns out to be a great gig with a very enthusiastic reception. After all that, we head to the coast to see the sea at East Lane in Bawdsey, however it's lashing with rain and blowing a gale so we bail out and de-camp instead to the nearby Oyster Inn at Butley for a spot of lunch in a nice old pub with a fire. Proper wintry Sunday stuff.
