The Diss Cornhall Beer Festival and Maglia Rosa Group, Diss, Norfolk - 12th October 2013

Nosher and Isobel cycle over with The Boy Phil to the Diss Cornhall Beer Festival to sample some ales. There's a good range of music on offer throughout the evening, culminating with a set from "Maglia Rosa Group", formed in part by local sibs Sam and Daisy and which appeared at this year's Latitude Festival. Presaging the musical theme, a few days before, Nosher's at the Fisher Theatre in Bungay to photograph Jacqui Dankworth - stage and film actor, jazz singer and daughter of Cleo Laine and Johnny Dankworth (the latter being, amongst many other things, the composer of the classic 1970s "Tomorrow's World" theme tune, which the band was rehearsing when Nosher rocks up at the venue). It's something of a challenge as the dressing-room is about 6 foot square, it's quite dark and we only have about five minutes before the band is meant to be on stage...
