1993 : The Student Union Years Six months later, The UEA Students’ Union in league with The City Council, established a less ambitious but more financially sustainable programme in the Venue. Offering a minimum 2 live shows and 2 alternative club nights per week and the promise that local bands would be offered opportunities where possible. The Union of UEA Students re-opened The Waterfront on 1st December 1993. 01 Dec Megadog (techno/trance club) £8.50 ft Aphex Twin + Eat Static + Banco de Gaia + Dj Michael Dog +MC Teabag. 02 Dec 03 Dec 04 Dec 08 Dec 10 Dec 11 Dec 15 Dec 16 Dec 17 Dec 18 Dec

Our Club Nights : As all the other venues in the city were playing pop or chart music, had strict dress codes (no jeans, no trainers, no t shirts) and were quite expensive. The Waterfront deliberately chose the alternative route, we welcomed, ‘students’, punks, hippies, long hair, jeans, goths, metalheads, fluffy leggings, mods, rockers, ravers …. Our dress code ‘as long as you cover your bits’ and don’t disrespect others, come in.

Fridays have always been the fashion led option, techno, trance, rave, drum & bass, acid jazz, house, etc. Over the years dance brands such as Milky Lunch, the Kitchen, Rumble, Pams House, Delusion , Color, Mr Bumpman, offyerface, and now Propaganda have all featured. Sometimes Fridays would host nostalgia nights, the Thatcher Years 80s night, Now 90s, 70s Night fever. Other weeks there were niche clubs, such as First Out, Absolution, Blush, Peachy. ( all promoted by Norwich’s LBGT community), some Latin Parties, some no alcohol under 18 nights, and currently Fuse a club offering social opportunities for people with disabilities.

A design team had been brought in for the original fitting of the Waterfront’s interior in ‘87, main ‘features’ included a solid concrete bar, stainless steel toilets, no cloakroom, a low ventilation system , a raised dance floor in front of the stage, industrial fences, they even built a solid brick fixture in the middle of the room for a sound desk to be positioned, it was all wrong in so many ways. With a renewed agreement with the Council, we focussed, with customers in mind and demolished and removed to give more space and better sight lines. 23 Sep 24 Sep 26 Sep 27 Sep 28 Sep 30 Sep

In the early 90s, going out was a very different thing, to today. Most pubs stopped serving at 11pm, everyone would go home then or move on to a nightclub which could serve until 2am. The Waterfront had a licence that allowed music until 1.30am, alcohol sales until 1am, however with the arrival of dance, raves, house, drum n bass, venues started to ask for later licences, the Waterfront asked the Norwich licensing committee for a regular 4am dancing licence on Fridays (we couldn’t ask for a Saturday one as the view was it would impact Sundays, still seen as a day of rest and religion). The Committee said we could have a late licence but only until 6am, then our departing customer noise would become part of the early to work commuters, but as a condition we had to stop serving alcohol at 1:00am.
