If you were watching the undercard fight of the Warrington vs Ceylon between Craig Poxton and Lyon Woodstock last month you may have seen a familiar name in the ring.   Craig is a Lowestoft fighter who trains at Ultimate Boxing, a gym also used by Spring founders Erika and Simon. Now one of our […]

Hello – I’ve recently joined Spring (four months and counting), but along with fellow Springer Glen, had the pleasure of taking up our cultural expansion grant that is offered to the whole team. This grant allows the team to attend a cultural activity or event of our choice to broaden our horizons and improve our […]

A recent study by Marbles has looked at the best seaside towns in Britain for a staycation, and Southwold has topped the chart, fending off other seaside favourites such as Brighton, Clovelly and Hunstanton. The report encompassed various factors, such as hotel costs, places to eat and drink, weather, and number of fish and chip […]

This August saw Spring’s launch of H2OMG, a family funfair themed event at The Forum, Norwich for Anglian Water. The event promoted Anglian Water’s work towards water sustainability and consisted of numerous stalls such as a Water Wheel of Fortune, a Magnet Maze and my personal favourite, Beat the Bog – a bean bag game […]

As a company that chose to follow its ambitions by the seaside, we have been fascinated with BBC Breakfast’s focus on life in Coastal Britain this week. The series revealed a great deal of love for the coast, both by people who live there and by those who only get to visit occasionally – and […]

  Two miles off the coast of Great Yarmouth there’s a sand island that is home to thousands of seals and a cluster of wind turbines. This summer I took a trip out there on Southwold’s Coastal Voyager. It’s exciting to see the land from the sea – Southwold, of course, looks enormously pretty and self-contained, […]

From time to time, we invite a person we admire, from any walk of life, to come and have lunch with us and talk about their experiences. Yesterday we welcomed Peter Wilson MBE to the Spring studio as he became the latest of our Spring Heroes.   Until last December, Peter was CEO of Norwich […]

It’s around this time of year that Southwold and the surrounding area pick up an extra buzz. People from around the country pour in for Latitude, one of the most popular festivals in the UK. It’s held on the Henham Estate, just four miles from Southwold and close enough for us to hear a kick drum […]

From Britten’s Aldeburgh Music taking over the whole Snape Maltings campus, to Sheeran’s love song to Suffolk, Castle on the Hill, breaking all streaming records. From Jon Hunt’s extraordinary Wilderness Reserve, which has just featured in Harpers Bazaar’s Top 150 hotels in the world, to a flood of high profile attention and substantial Heritage Lottery […]

One of Suffolk’s most famous children Ed Sheeran has released new music today, attracting worldwide media attention after a year-long break from producing, performing and posting on social media. The lyrics of one of his two new releases, Castle on the Hill, describe his experiences growing up in nearby town Framlingham and allude to the […]

Recently, the DBA – the design industry’s trade association – asked four of its board directors, including Spring’s co-founder Erika Clegg, to name a design they had admired in 2016. Erika chose the limited edition, hand-made brass poppy pin released by the Royal British Legion for Somme 100 as her 2016 design highlight, and said: […]

Experimental theatre isn’t necessarily for everyone, and it’s unlikely you’ll know for sure until you see it. So it’s quite a leap of faith for an audience member to take. At the end of October I was at SPILL Festival of Performance in Ipswich. SPILL has been going since 2007, and is produced by Ipswich-based […]

Last night’s Archant Business Awards kicked off in spectacular fashion thanks to a dancing waiter flashmob arranged by Spring with the help of DanceEast’s CATS students. The students were cunningly disguised as reception waiters, for the event opener sponsored by Spring. At a signal, thirty ‘waiters’ broke into energetic dance to a pumping soundtrack, much […]

This weekend saw the Norwich Theatre Royal host the James Plays, and two of the Springers attended thanks to the agency’s Cultural Expansion Grant. The three plays cover the stories of James I, II and III of Scotland, and are written by Rona Munro and directed by Laurie Sanson. That fact leaves you completely unprepared […]

Spring was inspired at the Suffolk & Ipswich Chambers April networking lunch at Woodbridge’s Seckford Hall this week by an insight into how Rick Sheepshanks’ Stokes Sauces achieves its award-winning success.   Influenced by Kevin Robert’s theory that trusted brands are not just respected but loved, his team are encouraged not just to focus on the […]

This weekend one of the Springers has been down TV memory lane – and, it seems, re-emerged as an agony aunt. Laura Marfell-Williams appeared on Blockbusters at the tender age of 17 (she hasn’t changed a bit) and assures us that, at the point seen here, she had only just started and the other two […]

This year, Spring decided to treat the pupils of Southwold’s primary school to a trip to see Snow White at Norwich Theatre Royal. Every year, the panto at Theatre Royal draws huge crowds (and with 1,300 seats it can accommodate them!) and gales of laughter. It’s an important part of many Springers’ Christmas, and we […]

This year I used my Cultural Expansion Grant to explore some of the best in design and art around London. My route through London Design Festival began by stumbling across one of the guides sitting outside Brands Limited in Clerkenwell. They were displaying a range by Bernhardt Designs, called Colours. The furniture was striking and […]
