Horsham Halls 600 first year students lived off campus on a former RAF base north of the city (near the airport) called Horsham on Fifers Lane. Students lived in 2 storey H Blocks,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. In the late 70s one of the H blocks was converted to a social area with a coffee bar and a badminton hall which doubled as a disco hall, gig venue and cinema ( In this giglist such events are referenced as K Block) To share memories with old Fifers friends https://www.facebook.com/groups/2649755609

14th March 1973, the building of University House finished and the Main Hall came into use. However 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. 21 Mar 73 Spirit + Average White Band + Cat Iron melody rooms 50p 28 Mar 73 Pretty Things assembly hall 50p 30 Mar 73 Richard Thompson + Linda Peters folk club The first gigs in the ‘New Hall’ later billed as the ‘Main Hall’…… then became the Large Common Room, the LCR. 05 May 73 06 May 73 08 May 73 18 May 73 21 May 73 29 May 73 05 Jun 73 24 Jun 73 27 Jun 73

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 remained 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’.
