Two Januarys ago, Norwich stalwart party-people were hit with the news that Pams House had decided to call time on a near 15-year residency at the UEA. With one of the most loyal and ardent followings of any club night ever known, they admit it was a difficult decision, but one that was made entirely by them, not by the UEA. Some cynics suggested it was a marketing scam to call a day on proceedings, but after 15 years of solidly bringing the party to Norwich, the Pammys promoters had genuinely run out of steam with the regular events. Not ones to close their ears to the public demand though, the will to return was so strong it ushered Pams back to its old home for a stonking 16th birthday party. Tey opened the decision up to the punters – and they resoundingly chose the UEA as the venue of choice for the 16th, which convinced Pams to return for their 17th Birthday last year too. Now the decision-making has been flipped on its head though; November’s Halloween event could well be the last ever UEA-based Pams House. Tis time, the decision is being made by the UEA and not by Pams. Owing to a change in their Entertainment and admission policies, Pams House may not fit into the venue’s future plans. So what next? Pams promoters have sent an email asking for the UEA to reconsider and for their coming-of-age, 18th Birthday in January to be the last one, if not the regular annual slot for the next few birthdays. A decision will be made after the Halloween event, so this is where they need your help. You’re encouraged to bring all your friends to the Nov 1st event, and show the UEA that Pams is still the friendliest and biggest event in the East, which continues to bring great revenue to their bars. Secondly, working with the UEA security team, as always, Pams will endeavour to keep any undesirables from coming in and ask YOU to party hard, but party responsibly. Do it for Pams!


Norwich Arts Centre was a hotbed of musical activity throughout October, being the packed out landmark venue for Norwich Sound & Vision. Tis month, the pace is brought to a manageable stroll, but with plenty still to take in. As well as its musical commitments, it’s home to a couple of dramatic productions in November that you’d do well to put in your diary. First, on Weds Nov 6th, Towns End Productions presents ‘We Will Be Free!’ ‘We Will Be Free!’ is a new drama about the Tolpuddle Martyrs - the Dorset farm labourers convicted and transported by an oppressive government for swearing a secret oath and forming a Trade Union in 1834 to fight against a succession of wage cuts inflicted by the local landowner. Tis vitally important story is told using political cartoon and animation, puppetry, and the exquisite musical arrangements by revered folk singer and squeezebox player John Kirkpatrick. Ten the following Wednesday, the 13th, Eastern Angles presents a brand new play by Norwich-based playwright Tony Ramsay. Commissioned by the John Clare Trust, Ramsay’s new work, ‘Te Long Life and Great Good Fortune of John Clare’, went on to receive rave reviews from the national press and amazing feedback from audiences all over East Anglia.

Norwich’s Peachy promotions are celebrating their first birthday this month with a series of special events around the city for everyone who likes their parties with a little extra decadence. After starting out in smaller surroundings at Karma Kafe, Peachy outgrew its origins and moved to Te Waterfront, where it has enjoyed a healthy monthly turn out. Paul Knight, event producer, describes the draw of the evening; “We like hedonists - people who like to party - we especially like anybody obsessed bydressing up, glitter and dancing. We pride ourselves on having a truly mixed audience- everybody from original punk rockers to the gay crowd, to old school ravers and party people, to trans girls in 14” heels. Eclectic is probably a good word to describe it!” And in a year of events which has seen performances by Kunt and the Gang, Joykiller, Discharge Lounge, Dr. Clyde, Te Ferries and Grimace as well as DJ sets by Jonny Megabyte, the Drink N Jive DJs and razorblade eating by Daisy Black, who are we to argue? Paul continues, “It’s been such a lot of fun coming up with the themes for the shows. We’ve had a Mayan Apocalypse night and a night dedicated to 1960s hippie mind control cults (complete with orchestrated Kool Aid drinking), as well as a weird mix of Ghetto Pirates, fairies, 1970s New York street gangs, and bargain basement super heroes. Te weirder the gigs get, the more fun it is…”, he grins. To experience the heady world of Peachy, check out their newly-launched midweek nights (info on Facebook), or head to the main event, their first birthday party on Nov 29th at the Waterfront. Peachy takes place on the last Friday of the month at Norwich’s premier alternative venue the Waterfront from 10pm-3am, entry is £4.50/£3.50 students - for more details and up to the minute news, go to Photo credit: Ruski, /November 2013/ 43
