  • I love Norwich because I was born here, Norfolk as a whole is a lovely place to be. I hope it's not ruined by overbuilding in the future. I agree with Harry Rabinowitz about people like Albert Cooper and Anna of the Jolly Butchers - shame the Jolly Butchers has been turned into offices I believe.

  • Great characters and musicians like Albert Cooper are the very soul of Norwich,and marvellous singers and entertainers of the past like Black Anna made it a great place to be! Nights down the Jolly Butchers were an experience to be remembered!

  • For once I sympathise with Archant for taking some comments off this column,not a lot,but if views are too extreme and actually offensive it's justified!

  • That's the sort of comment Billy I would expect in an Alabama newspaper! We are now a multicultural family and as a jazz musician as far as i'm concerned there is no racism in music! Norwich just doesn't appear to suffer too much of the problems associated with big cities,apart from the council's efforts at reorganising traffic at considerable cost to the taxpayer to make sure that driving around our fine city is an unpleasant experience, one you don't get when shopping on Amazon!

  • Norwich is low on crime,with a strong artistic and cultural tradition,and is a natural magnet for creative people. The city has one of the finest examples of a Norman castle anywhere in England that towers majestically over the centre looking down on the citizens going about their business,trying to park,waiting for buses to turn up or queueing at food banks.Those in pursuit of a musical and cultural treat need look no further than the Haymarket where the subtle and carefully choreographed movements of the puppet man are a fine example of mime at it's best!
