Organised by: Southwold Railway Trust

Just ten minutes' walk from the town centre, it is where The Southwold Railway Trust volunteers are working on locomotives and rolling stock, with the aim of re-creating the experience of travelling on the 3-foot gauge Southwold Railway (operated 1879-1929). Open Days are taking place on selected dates in July and August - come and see how this recently acquired site is being transformed, the 3-foot gauge steam engine Scaldwell, the Blyth Valley Light Railway (a 7.25 inch railway), and learn more of what the Trust is achieving. Refreshments available. Shop. All Welcome.

Southwold Summer Theatre - MURDER WEAPON by Brian Clemens

Organised by: Southwold Summer Theatre
Venue: St. Edmund's Hall, Cumberland Road, Southwold IP18 6JP link
Matinee performance. Murder and mystery from the creator of “The Avengers”. Chief Constable Jessica Bligh returns to the home of her best friend, Diane, after a night out to find herself the key eye-witness of a murder. According to the cynical Inspector Fremont, the case is cut and dried but Jessica is not so sure. Yes, the prime suspect was standing over the body of Diane’s husband with the proverbial smoking gun in his hand, but it doesn’t feel right. Less of a whodunit than a how and why, Fremont’s case rapidly unravels until no one is sure who the murderer is, nor what exactly is the identity of the murder weapon itself. Performances 17th-29th July (not Sunday).
Ticket Details: £11.00 - £13.00 - Box Office at St.Edmunds Hall open Mon-Fri noon-4pm
Who to Contact: Box Office 01502 722 572
