On Saturday night I photographed Newton Faulkner at Open in Norwich. This was my first time in the main room at Open since they started putting on gigs. It’s a beautiful venue, in the perfect location in the centre of Norwich. As you can see from the images I took from the balcony, the architecture really makes this venue stand out from other local venues, and the tall auditorium helps the acoustics making this the best room around, from a sound perspective.

Newton Faulkner was an interesting performer, just him on the stage with a bass drum, a few guitars, and a globe containing a teapot. A great performance, not only musically but also entertaining due to Newtons sense of humour. He managed to make this gig in front of 1,400 people feel like a much smaller/intimate gig.
