Memories of broken hearts to rock and roll, and launderettes to love affairs all feature in a London-themed, jazz-orientated symphonic poem presented by The Jehane Markham Trio at Sheringham Little Theatre on Sunday.

Featuring Robin Phillips on piano and Jonny Gee on double bass, the trio, which aims to complement original poetry with musical soundscapes, was formed by playwright and poet Jehane Markham in 2004.

The London Series, which is part homage and part memoir, moves between contrasting areas of North London, touching on the personal and literary associations each place holds for the poet.

Jehane, who has written poems, plays and adaptations of modern classics for TV, radio and theatre, was commissioned by the Royal Opera House to write the libretto for a choral piece premiered at Glyndebourne in March.

The London Series was recently released as a CD, alongside the trio's composition Vladivostok to Moscow, which they performed at the Little Theatre last year.

The trio will be performing in the Hub at Sheringham Little Theatre at 8pm on Sunday. Tickets, priced �6, are available from the box office on 01263 822347.
