I keep thinking you must mean Sussex, not Suffolk. Anyway, sounds like a lovely hols.

Not to blight the forum with yet another tedious link, but this was interesting to read on the history of the Royal Vauxhall Tavern:

and here's the site for the venue itself and its events:

A "Hot August Fringe" indeed — let's hear it for Global Warming!*

You are right of course. And Sussex was a lovely area not at all familiar to me from previous visits. So is Suffolk though - I've spent two nice summers nearby in Norfolk however.

And thanks, Judith! It seems that my mind is only slowly making its way from the real thing to the "Virtual Britannia" here...
