MICHAEL DRAKE Eaton Park, Norwich
What to do with the children on a fine summer's morning?
First, define children, for this show was built for ages nought to 100. Thus qualified for a bit of clowning, I thought the lottery-funded and tidied- up Eaton Park worth a visit for the first time in many years.
And in a corner, seated on a tarpaulin, a substantial crowd of youngsters and their 'minders' watched the local and professional Cosmos and Joe, egged on by their clown mistress, Sam. They were of course silly but meant to be.
After a slow start, the audience joined in the fun of much falling about and inevitably there was plenty of water.
The long build-up resulted in a death-defying leap (from a small pair of steps) into two inches of water in a bucket. There were no injuries and it provided a good pre-lunch diversion.
