One of the people who started the University folk club was Dave Hunt, when he was Deputy Catering Manager at the Union in 1966. The folk club at Birmingham University booked  some great guests, as they were supported financially by the university. They were very pro-active and showed a sense of humour in the leaflets that they produced (see examples below). The University also ran a very successful dance section, which I hope to produce an article about in the future.
