Drinks in the Haymarket, the Percy, and the Farmer's Rest, then on to Men's Bar then up to the Level 6 disco. That meant 10-12 pints of Fed Special and Exhibition. The next day the cure was a ham and pease pudding stotty cake and a pint of milk.
Life really was simpler in 1976!
WE also went to lectures and handed our work in on time. I achieved a BSc with Distinction and loved every minute of my life in Newcastle and Gateshead. I met the love of my life and my wife of 28 years in a city centre disco.
