Where have we been?

Our ambition is to tour Can You Dig It? to every county in the UK.

Boots ban

Dan and I are used to getting changed in unusual places. But our show at The Pavilion in Hindringham on Easter Saturday was the first time we’ve been allocated a football dressing room.

When we arrived at the venue two local football teams were mid-way through an important match. We got to use the […]

I HAVE been digging/forking!

Some people don’t believe Dan and I really do have allotments but we do. I have been taking advantage of the bank holiday weekend to do some digging/forking on mine.

Tomorrow – Easter Saturday – we’re off to Norfolk again. Woo! We’ll be doing the show at the Pavilion in […]

Inundated with Experts

During our recent run of shows in Norfolk with Creative Arts East, we have be fortunate to preform in front of some luminaries of the gardening world, including international rose expert Lieutenant Colonel Ken Grapes, who helped our friend Dr DG Hessayon write The Rose Expert, which could have been the title of Keith’s […]

Can You Dig It Up?

We were amused by this big sign, which would be perfect for our new show about grave digging/robbing.

Behind the scenes

We’re back in Norfolk! Woo! This is a behind-the-scenes shot taken during the interval of our show at the Cley Marshes Visitor Centre last night. Cley Marshes is an amazing nature reserve with stunning views. We arrived in daylight so had a chance to appreciate the scenery. However, it was dark when we […]

Allotment soup

This is “allotment  soup”, which was served in the interval of our show at The Mermaid in Elsing last weekend –  the perfect accompaniment to a night of vegetable cultivation-based musical comedy. We enjoyed doing the show very much and the soup was very tasty.

Poor Rodney

Here is a picture of poor Rodney. I recently re-potted him and have given him some plant food so still have hope he can recover but Dan says it may be time for him to retire.

We enjoyed doing the show in Sedgeford last night. Tonight we are at The Mermaid Inn in […]

Crowning glory


We did what we think is our very first full show in a pub last night – The Banningham Crown in the village of Banningham. It was a fun night with a lovely audience. We’ll be popping up in a few more pubs as part of this latest run of shows with […]

One potato, three potato

I am a bit behind so have only just got round to chitting my potatoes.

I am planning on growing three classic varieties this year – Pentland Javelin, Maris Piper and Nicola. I have spread my seed potatoes out on a copy of Waitrose Weekend, which is very middle-class. Dan chits his on […]
