UEA hasn't just hosted great music over the years but a number of great comedy performers too. Take a look at what we've managed to get down from our loft. Did you see any of these shows? Belated reviews are always welcome.

Top festival fact: Mark Lamarr went on to host the TV show "Never Mind the Buzzcocks" from 1996 - 2005 and did a guest DJ set for UEA's 50th Anniversary celebration party back in 2013 together with Kid Creole & The Coconuts and a set by ventriloquist Nina Conti.

Taken a look at the Gig List?LCR Green Room

  • What was your favourite gig?
  • Which gig did you miss?
  • Which gig did you wish you'd gone to?
  • Who did you go with?
  • What were you wearing?

We want to hear about everything; from the sticky floors and spilt beer to the misguided crushes and missed buses.

We will repost choice moments in our quote box, on our @UEAgighistory Twitter feed and generally decorate our site with your ticket stubs, photos and old posters (if that's ok).*
