The classic farce, Charley’s Aunt, is being staged at the Fisher Theatre in Bungay this evening by the Roughcast Theatre Company. It centres on two Oxford undergraduates, Jack and Charley, in a search for a chaperone for a visit from their girlfriends to whom they hope to propose. Tickets are £12 or £8 for concessions.

Tomorrow evening Honey and the Bear combine elements of folk, Americana, country and blues in an evening of music which reflects their Suffolk roots. The multi-instrumentalist pair, comprising songwriters Jon Hart and Lucy Sampson, have been writing together for the past two years. The gig is at 7.30pm and tickets are £10 or £9 for concessions.

Monday brings the Royal Opera House Live production of Boris Godunov to the theatre, at 7.15pm. It is a new production of Musorgsky’s historical masterpiece in its 1869 first version of Pushkin’s play about Tzar Boris Godunov. Tickets are £12. Craig Ralston, senior suite manager of Natural England’s Lower Derwent Valley and an accomplished ornithologist and author is at the theatre on Thursday to tell of his satellite-tracking of Wally the Whimbrel - a fascinating look at wildlife and a must for all who enjoy nature. Tickets are £6.

And next Friday, March 25, Alvin Ailey Live is beamed to Bungay. His Revelations is a stunning tour de force which draws on African-American spirituals, song sermons, gospel songs and holy blues. Ticket are £12.

Tickets for all events are available at, or by calling 01986 897130.
