Filming #DynamicEast with @MustardTV – Week 2

If you’ve read our post of 4 September, you’ll know we’ve just embarked on a new adventure with Mustard TV. The second week of filming #DynamicEast has been just as intense as the first. Our journey has taken us from Norwich to Diss and down to Ipswich.

Monday 5 September:

An early start at the Museum of Norwich in Bridewell Alley, finding out about our rich industrial heritage.

Then down the hill to the new Ideas Factory to see how Norwich University of the Arts is supporting creative entrepreneurs.

A quick coffee with cameraman Jonny in Little Red Roaster on St Andrew’s Hill.

Then out to the UEA to talk to Dr John French, CEO of the Adapt Low Carbon Group, at the beautiful Enterprise Centre.

Wrapped up the day talking to Dr Sally Ann Forsyth, CEO of Norwich Research Partners LLP, about her role developing the life sciences cluster on the Norwich Research Park.

Tuesday 6 September:

An even earlier start and a longer drive. This time down the (appallingly slow) A140 to Ipswich and Ad Astral Park, home of the Innovation Martlesham tech cluster. Fascinating place and excellent chats with Ian Buxton, chair of Tech East, and Frances Hedley from BT.

Dropped into Otley College on the way home to grab an interview with Jason Hawkins-Row, founder of vertical farming startup Aponic.

Friday 9 September:

Spent the morning at Whitespace, the Norwich tech hub based in St James Mill, interviewing some of the entrepreneurs in the local digital creative scene .

Home for a quick coffee with my wonderful business partner. Then on to Diss to see one of the regional dynamos, the AIM listed Midwich. Rounded off the afternoon at the Midwich fête in aid of the Big C cancer charity.

All in all a good week – and I won a bottle of beer on the Big C tombola.

Watch this space for updates – and confirmation of the #DynamicEast’s broadcast times on Mustard TV.

UPDATE: Mustard TV will broadcast Episode 1 of #DynamicEast at 19:30 on 28 Sept (then weekly).
