Norwich Remembers is a group aiming to get the whole of the city reminicising and enjoying snapshots of the past.

We want to see photographs of your ancestors getting married at Norwich Cathedral in the 30s, candid pictures of your best friends enjoying a gig in the Lad's Club in the 70s, and those old school photos in The Loft from the 80s? We want those too!

From the old cobbled streets of Elm Hill to the buzz of the old Norwich Market, everyone has their favourite places in Norwich but what were they like 40, 50, 60 years ago? Norwich Remembers delves deep into the Evening News archives to discover and share with you the history of a fine city with a new post every single day.

With almost 500 members signed up already, we've got a community talking, making connections and sharing their memories of days gone by.

Join us on Facebook today!
