Extra Social Events 2018



Hands Across the Rivers

a joint social event with the 



Saturday, 13 January, 7pm (for 8)


Back by popular demand following last year's success, a joint social between EACC and the Yare Sailing Club. This year it will be held in the Ribs of Beef in central Norwich on the banks of the Wensum. The Ribs is a very traditional pub with a good range of well priced drinks and a lovely ambience. There is a small room downstairs which seats about 20 people very snugly or 30 standing, a raised area upstairs which seats about 10 snugly and a good space around it and then the general pub space, so depending on numbers  it looks like a good place with options to mingle. 

The pub does not do meals in the evening, but they are happy for us to bring food in so we will be ordering in food from the Spice Lounge, which is located on Fye Bridge Street and offers a good range of both the usual and more specialist Indian dishes.  The food is very good and their menu is extensive, with the takeaway price 15% below the eat in price shown. Preorders are absolutely essential! The menu is here and if you are coming and want to eat please can you make your selection, calculate the cost as shown on the menu (I will apply the 15% discount when I collate the order) and send it to Cally by teatime Sunday 7th January. I will order poppadums for everyone who is eating, so don't order those, but do include everything else.  We look forward to seeing you all there.

The pub is easily accessed by public transport (less than 15 minutes walk from Norwich station and buses from Tombland) or there are car parks locally (St Andrews is probably the closest) or there is mooring outside if anyone is feeling really hardy! Racing between the bridges is optional. 

We look forward to seeing you all there
