John Bone: Poems ... here’s looking at you

14 July 2016

An exhibition of poems sounds the strangest of events. Surely poems are to be read quietly when alone or read aloud to an audience. They are not to be looked at. Yet there is an exhibition of poems at Newmarket Library right now after transferring from (even stranger) Waitrose. Yes, I know, it sounds daft but, (strangest yet), this show by poet Yvonne Zellen coupled with photographs, actually works. What next? A symphony concert consisting of sheet music pinned to a wall?Art has no boundaries.

John Bone: Shame to miss the staycation rush

07 July 2016

It is a thousand pities that Newmarket’s new National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art has had to be closed for completion, before opening properly in the autumn. So many economic factors suggest this will be a prime summer for holidays at home. Everything, apart perhaps from the weather, points to a promising season for East Anglia’s tourist trade. Yet our big new draw will be shut. What a shame the work could not be delayed or advanced to catch the favourable wind. But I suppose a century is a short space of time in Newmarket’s history and we must be patient.
