Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot from 8am on 25th September, 25th September 2016, 8:00 to 14:00 at Stonham Car Boot, Pettaugh Road, Stonham Aspal (14.9 miles)

Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot is on every Sunday from 8am. The next one is Sunday, September 25th 2016 and we expect another great crowd of sellers & buyers. Make sure you are quick with the Covered stalls (see picture) as they go quickly every week. Text your number plate to reserve one (07817539168). These are held till 8.15am only. We are now on the big field so there's lots of room and you can just turn up and sell from Five Pounds (no need to book). When you enter Stonham take the left into the field and wait to be positioned. Events often run at the same time as the Car Boot make sure you check the Events page regularly as we have quite a few good ones this year. For example The American Car Meet, on October 2nd, will be another big one.

Stonham is the one to go to if you want a great relaxing day without being hassled and able to set up in peace. Each week the buyers will increase dramatically and we are lucky to have ones that actually buy.

Stonham is known for its one off sellers and Antiques (as well as all the normal Car Boot items) and after 4 years we are getting a good regular crowd of sellers and buyers. Everyone loves Stonham as its unbeatable when the weather is good. It has a great atmosphere, a knowledgeable friendly crowd made up of all ages. Families, young and old, it is dog friendly and caters for the disabled. You can still sell from Five Pounds right up to Ten Pounds for Covered stalls. These are really a hit with the sellers as you can book by texting 07817539168, pull up behind, set up and sell and pack up and leave at the end of the day. Alternatively, we are still the cheapest in Suffolk so you can just turn up from 8am and sell.

Once you are on the field we allow sellers as much space as you require and you can even bring a gazebo and set up. We allow anyone to sell most things the only restriction we have is with plants whereby we allow small vans/cars selling plants grown from home but, they will need to be part of a variety of things sold. Anyone selling old gardening tools etc. is fine. Call me if unsure. It is just common sense you just need to bring a variety rather than a van full of just flowers.

Something I think is really important and is part of the whole idea of the Traditional Car Boot, is the fact that you can sell without the fear of things being stolen or being pestered whilst setting up. I hear that this is a problem at so many Car Boots but, we are a big family Car Boot.

We are on the Coastal Route & in Summer have the Campsite and Holiday Homes full up and filled with Car Boot lovers. We have a guaranteed extra crowd already there. Plus with all the attractions, Shops, Golf/Fishing, Owl Sanctuary, Serpent House/Pet Shop, Toy Shop, Ladies fashion and so many other things to see and do we are such a great venue for a Car Boot. On top of that we have the big events running in tandem with the Car Boot.

Sellers tend to arrive from 8am onwards (we do allow earlier but, Stonham wakes up after 9am with the shops and attractions also opening at 10am).

We are outdoors only but offer covered stalls. We try to open every week irrespective of the weather as we still get buyers and sellers.

We have been asked to start a Tuesday morning Car Boot and I am interested to know what everyone thinks. Stonham are getting daily coach trips stopping there and also there isn't one locally on a Tuesday, so far, so your thoughts appreciated. If I get enough interest I will start one. Thoughts from sellers and buyers welcome. Text or email me.

Gitano - Jairo Barrull Flamenco Company, 2nd October 2016, 19:30 to 21:15 at The Apex, 1 Charter Square, Bury St Edmunds, Charter Square, Bury St. Edmunds (22.2 miles)
Jairo Barrull Flamenco Company present 'Gitano' with special guest Gema Moneo.
Jairo Barrull Fernández (1983, Seville), son of Ramón Barrull, grandson of Tony El Gitano and great great nephew of the flamenco guitarist Diego del Gastor, is heir and creator of his own style of Andalusian Gypsy flamenco dance.
Jairo explains, “For me the Gypsy art form is a specific way of feeling and expressing oneself. There isn’t any other word that describes me better in flamenco dance. There are various factors that have influenced why I identify with the gypsy dance form, but the most important is when an artist identifies his or her art form with that certain way of expressing, that is what defines them artistically and I have always felt this way. The Gypsy dance form evolves because we don’t dance how Gypsy dancers used to dance 40 years ago but the feeling is the same. A feeling doesn’t have an expiry date, not with the different fashions that come and go. The pure feeling is always there because it is authentic.”
Barrull started to dance under the direction of his father when he was 7 years old and he started his professional dance career when he was 13 years old. In 1997 he danced in front of the Pope John Paul II in the Paul VI Auditorium, The Vatican, Rome, in the show 'Un Gitano de Ley', for the beatification of Ceferino Jiménez Malla 'El Pele'. At 16 years of age he had already worked with some of the greatest flamenco icons in the world such as ‘El Chocolate’, ‘Angelita Vargas’, ‘Farruquito’, ‘Concha Vargas’ and ‘Arcangel’. He has collaborated in numerous flamenco shows including ‘Incognito’ by Francis Brunn which premiered at the Opera Theatre of Frankfurt, ‘La Sinfonía Flamenca’ at the National Orchestra of Lyons Auditorium, ‘Magia de Maestros’ Berliner Philharmonie and ‘Al-Andalus’ that toured North America and Argentina in the Theatre Avenida.
The show will open with ‘Bulerías’ and will continue with the flamenco styles that according to Barrull are the core of Gypsy flamenco dance – ‘Alegrías’, ‘Seguiriya’ and ‘Soleá’. The show will also feature guest artist Gema Moneo, niece of the famed flamenco singer Juan Moneo ‘El Torta’ from Jerez de la Frontera. At just 24 years old Gema has already toured the world and participated in several prestigious flamenco festivals such as La Bienal de Sevilla, The Festival de Jerez and the Flamenco Festival of London. In 2010 she joined Farruquito’s company and danced in two of his shows ‘El Baile Flamenco’ and ‘Sonerías’. More recently in 2014 Gema joined Joaquín Cortés’ company and later that year performed in the show ‘Con Carmen Amaya en la memoria’ in Barcelona alongside Pastora Galvan and Karime Amaya. Jairo and Gema will be accompanied by flamenco singers El Quini de Jerez and José ‘El Pechuguita’, flamenco guitarist Eugenio Iglesias and percussionist Paco Vega.

Bounceability meet at 157 Colchester Road, Colchester Road, West Bergholt, Colchester (7.8 miles)
Bounceability is something we are born with. Think about a child learning to walk. No matter how many times they might stumble and fall, they get right back up again and try again until they get it right. The trouble is that as we grow up our view of the world is shaped and fashioned by our experiences, and sometimes we become fearful of trying again. We get stuck into negative patterns of behaviour and ways of thinking and sometimes just don't know how to change. Have you got stuck or just forgotten how to be happy? Have you given up trying? Maybe you could use some Bounceability.
So whether you feel as if you are in a rut but can't figure out how to get out of it; if you have made bad choices and are struggling with the consequences of your decisions; if you have a bad habit that you want to eliminate; if you want to lose weight or stop smoking; if your nerves are getting the better of you or if something outside your control has had an impact on your life, or whatever is stopping you from living the life of your dreams, you need some Bounceability.
