Jay Leighton’s Album Launch

Last week the lovely Jay Leighton paid us a visit in Norwich to launch his new album ‘Hours’. The first single from the album is called ‘Wish I Was Springsteen’ and you can hear it below. We started off the day by heading to BBC Norfolk for a live radio session with the legendary Stephen […]

Two Weeks in Photos

It seems to have been quite a while since I last did a blogpost here myself; I’ve had the privilege of some talented folks featuring their words on the site as guest bloggers, and I’m very grateful to them indeed. We still have a few more exciting guest posts coming up, but for now, here’s […]

5 things travel taught me in 2012

I’ve been lucky enough to travel all over the world during these past twelve months, and with a year’s worth of travel behind me, I’m taking the opportunity to share some of my very own top tips for travel this month. Here are five quick points for your perusal. Getting to the airport  I used […]

Norwich Food: The Last Brasserie

A couple of weeks back, my friend Connie and I were stressed. Stressed beyond belief. We both had way too much work to do – too many essays to write, not enough time and no gut-desire to actually do it. Given what wayward souls we are, the obvious solution was a lovely dinner and drinks […]

MA applications and postgraduate study

Regular readers of Take on the Road will know that I applied to the University of East Anglia for a place on their MA in Biography and Creative Non-Fiction a month or so back. Their writing courses are the best in the country and some of the best in the world, which made the application […]

Norwich Lanes: 42 King Street

So, this place isn’t actually in the Norwich Lanes, but it definitely has the Lanes vibe, so we’ll let it slide this once. Where is it, you might ask, if not in the Norwich Lanes? Try 42 King Street…duh… My old housemate Alex (who is currently residing in Portland, Oregon for the year – amazing, […]

Norwich Lanes: Biddy’s Tea Room

Norwich is full of wonderful places, and even though I’ve been living in the city for years now, there are still a collection of spots I haven’t explored. Biddy’s Tea Room was one such spot, until last week when I dragged some friends along for an afternoon of tea and things… The whole set up is […]

This Weekend: 45rpm at The Garage

In typical Norwich fashion, the city plays host to something very special and very innovative this weekend, and I’m really looking forward to it. Presented by a new Arts Council English initiative called The Record Partnership alongside The Moving Theatre, 45rpm is a multi-arts festival inspired by the rock and pop icons of the 1970s, […]

Summer in Norwich: Lanes Festival 2012

As the days grow darker and the leaves turn orange and gold, I’m beginning to miss the summertime a little. It feels like the season passed us all by with only a few days of heat and too much rain to bear. And so much for that Indian summer everyone was talking about…the autumn months […]
