Liz Coates. People having a great time at Rosies night club in Great Yarmouth. Picture: Supplied. But if last weekend’s Garibaldi reunion at Gorleston’s Ocean Room proved anything it was that memories of the town’s great clubbing era have endured. Some people packed into the seaside venue to enjoy a retro night of clubbing nostalgia on Saturday February The event was a throwback to the days when you actually had to leave the house to meet people and young clubbers lived for Friday and Saturday nights. Nights out started with a queue, then another for the cloakroom, then another for a drink – and ended in the kebab shop and a wait for a taxi. Youngsters knew where they would get served and where they wouldn’t and if you struck up a liaison one week the odds were you’d have to wait until the next and a hoped-for chance encounter to see if it would go anywhere and whether they were on the phone. A trawl through our picture archive takes us back in time to Rosies, The Ocean Room, The Brunswick, Peggottys, Divers, and Moments – when going out meant hours getting ready, Twilight Teaser lipstick, blue mascara, a cigarette burn in a silk blouse, and a hangover the next day.

Caroline Culot. Making first dates fun! Suzy Robb and Charlie Day at the last dating event in November. Pic: Charlie Day. Instead of getting images of a potential date flash up on an app and needing to swipe if you are interested, you get a chance to actually talk and get to know other single people at a series of events organised by the innovative duo. It comes just after the day hailed as the busiest of the year for online dating, last Sunday, which saw huge spikes in people joining up in hope of finding romance in the new year ahead.
Charlie Day, 38 and Suzy Robb, 43, both working, time poor mums, were disillusioned with the online dating services provided – so decided to act and use their experience and contacts to set up Socialise! Instead, they gather a group of like minded single people and meet at a venue where a drink of fizz and light meal is provided for a set cost — the hope is people will really hit it off and meet up again. Both ladies are divorced and both have two children; Charlie has a seven and nine year old and Suzy, a nine and six year-old.
They met doing the school runs and became firm friends, with the same thing — the fact they were single — in common. Although they have found it relatively easy to attract single ladies, they do need more men to attend. And if the idea really takes off, they are hoping it might even spark off franchise opportunities.
