1977 In 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 bookings for the new trend of ‘punk bands’, Their conclusion… ‘There would be a need for extra stewards to stop the audience encroaching on the stage’. 25 Nov 77 19 Nov 77 04 Nov 77

The LCR had a new system of moveable stage blocks and extra plug sockets installed as the latest acts were now bringing more coloured, flashing lights with them. The bar was fitted for functions and student staff were paid 56p an hour. A student got an annual grant of £605 to pay for term time living expenses, while a room in Norfolk Terrace cost about £4.14 a week to rent.

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

In the 70s and 80s: 600 first year students lived off campus on a former RAF base north of the city (near the current airport) called Horsham on Fifers Lane. Students had cooked breakfast provided, before queueing for a really poor bus service to campus (Last bus home was before midnight). There were recreation facilities in B and G block which included a small bar, a cellar and basic function rooms.


1971 Events were held on the Village site in the Assembly Hall, the Lower Common Room or the Barn, some of the big events were held in City Centre venues, the Lads Club (King Street), the Melody Rooms (Oak Street), St Andrews Hall, the Jacquard Club (Magdalen St), G Block in the Student residences at Horsham (fifers lane) and various festivals were in Earlham Park. The main Campus was being built, breezeblock by breezeblock, ziggurat by ziggurat. 1970-1971

As well as ballroom dancing, classical music society and the weekly Gramophone club meetings, the bigger social events were organised by RAG (Charity fund raising), the Jazz Club, a Folk Club or the Social Committee of the SU, all staging local and national performers on a regular basis.

In October 1963 the University was established and opened to 150 students all based in the Village for study. Their social life was focused around a film on Sunday night and a dance on Saturdays, which many Norwich people attended, the events took place in the Assembly Hall in The Village with a late bar closing at 10.30pm on dance nights.
