Welcome to the Lancaster University Revue Group historical archive. LURG was a student comedy society, active between 1976 and 1992. The site is dedicated to collecting and preserving the wealth of memorabilia associated with the Group and to documenting the many productions it mounted.

According to Douglas Adams, it's the answer to life, the universe and everything, while Wikipedia says it's the third primary pseudoperfect number. More importantly, it's LURG's age, as of 28/Jan/2018. It's not been the best year, losing both Patrick and Ray. Here's hoping that you all stay fit and well in the year ahead.

Site Status

This site hosts a significant body of LURG related material. You will find original programmes, running orders, publicity material, reviews (good and bad!), plus facts about known performances. Also included are many performance and social photos, some previously unseen for nearly four decades. Probably most significant, are the recordings of many early shows, along with a few rehearsals.

Ex-members can also actively participate in the site. Information contribution forms are dotted all round the site. Additionally, registered members can comment on much of the site's content.

That said, the site is very much a work in progress. There are many gaps to be filled in the historical content, as detailed on the Wanted! and Unanswered Questions pages. Former members are strongly encouraged to contribute missing information, photos, memorabilia, documents or recordings.

In Memoriam

Very sorry to report the passing of Ray Winter (15/Jan/2018) and Patrick Burton (12/Nov/2017). In Memoriam pages have been created for each of them.
