1976 -77 1 Dec 77 An Entertainments report was made to Students council stating that Ents had made a surplus of £300 this term, that Folk club was in decline, but the Jazz club was very popular. They also debated whether to allow any future bookings for the new trend ‘punk bands’, Their conclusion… ‘There would be a need for extra stewards to stop the audience encroaching on to the stage’. 25 Nov 77 19 Nov 77 04 Nov 77 18 Oct 77

In spring 1973, University House was completed and the Large Common Room (then called the Main Hall ) came into use, 14th March. Due to no equipment being installed , the bar was only 3m long, there weren’t enough toilets, University staffing costs were huge and there were lots of restrictions on the licence, so events continued across other rooms and halls mostly in the village or Horsham where the refurbishment of K Block offered a new sport/ function hall. 13 Mar 73 13 Mar 73 09 Mar 73 02 Mar 73 10 Feb 73 02 Feb 73 28 Jan 73 19 Jan 73
