I've been asked to find out if anyone has any information or memories on Julius Pam. They played at the Links a few times in the early 70s and at various other venues in Norfolk. Please email Julie - details on the 'Contact' page - if you can help. Thanks

Ken Bloom contacted me to say: ' I was the DJ a few times at the old West Runton Pavilion. I remember very well the night Slade came, me with my tiny speakers, them with a lorry load of gear! Great memories. My DJ name was Mark Christie. Still doing the odd one or two a year for fun.'

Hi Bern
It was actually 1965 when the Abject Blues band were supported by The Ultimate. Unfortunately, I don't have any more dates either!
All the best - Julie

My band, Abject Blues, played at the Roayl Links Pavilion on more than one occasion, however, the only date I'm sure of is 20th November - but I'm not sure of the year - could have been '66 or '67. I have the poster, which shows that we were supported by The Ultimate, and that the next weeks group was Adam Faith's backing group, The Roulletes. As I remember it, we were given accommodation in a caravan, perched on top of a very windy cliff. Happy days.

Stuart McClean's memories:
Too many bands to mention, lots of beer, a few scraps, sleeping in gardens and a long walk home in the early hours, fish and chips running with grease from the park chippy, coaches coming in from all over and Pud on the door. Happy days!

Stephen Stolady remembers a bouncer who wore thick glasses, who he and mates nick-named 'Wheels'. Does anyone else remember this bouncer?

Message from Trevor Hunton:

I was a regular at Cromer Links and then West Runton in my teens and watched loads of brilliant bands including Queen for as little as 50p. A lot of these bands are still around still playing gigs and festivals.
