Before Albert Einstein there was Srinivasa Ramanujan – a little known fact outside India and the academic community.

Colonial India, 1913. Srinavasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel) is a 25-year-old shipping clerk and self-taught mathematical genius. Determined to pursue his passion despite rejection and derision from his peers, Ramanujan writes a letter to G. H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons), an eminent British mathematics professor at Trinity College, Cambridge. Hardy recognizes the originality and brilliance of Ramanujan’s raw talent and despite the scepticism of his colleagues, undertakes to bring him to Cambridge so that his theories can be explored. Leaving his young wife behind, Ramanujan arrives in England where his race and culture arouse prejudice and hostility.
Also starring Stephen Fry and Toby Jones, and Jeremy Northam as Bertrand Russell.

Dev Patel captures his character with integrity and passion, and in some ways, plays a type of underdog more akin to his breakout role in Slumdog Millionaire than the Marigold Hotel.
Also featuring Toby Jones, Stephen Fry.

Brocantes – new shop in Walsingham

New this month to Walsingham is Brocantes, next to Bert Frew and the Farm Shop. Set up by Angela and assisted by Richard Willson it is a shop that seeks to fuse proper antiques with mid-century collectables with emphasis both to the home and also the importance of the garden as an extra room in your property.

We love to paint vintage furniture and to finish in a number of different ways that theme small collections within our stock .

We also enjoy our pictures . ‘Art’ is always perceived as something to intellectualise over. We are simpler. You like a picture because you like it. Our art is all original and from all periods. We have a great selection of accessories in pottery, china, woods and metals.

We offer an interior decoration service. We also offer our skills to hand paint finish a special piece of furniture you may already own .

Come and have a chat to discuss your ideas and requirements .

We are open every day except Mondays. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Angela and Richard Willson
