The Guide to a Norwich Night out

By Cassie Waters.

When starting to explore the city it can be hard to know where to begin. The LCR has a lot going for it but as Freshers Week draws to an end the time has come to start exploring all Norwich has to offer. So as a seasoned Norwich drinker I have decided to offer up some help. Remember those Goosebumps books you read as a child? The ones which allow you to decide the plot, depending on what page you choose to turn to? This guide is kind of like that. Imagine you’re on a night out, at each step you will be asked a question about what you want to do and the kind of night you would like to have? From chilling in a bar to clubbing, no matter what your budget I should have you covered! So off you go on your drunken journey, have a drink on me. Continue reading The Guide to a Norwich Night out

Easy Freshers Recipes: Paella

by Luke Farnish

I sometimes refer to this as a ‘notella’ as unlike many other  recipes for paella, it does not contain chicken. This is a recipe that is adaptable to a vegetarian diet if required. Equally, any hard vegetables can be used in exchange of the vegetables listed below. Please note, if you wish to include chicken or uncooked seafood in this you will need to precook these. Put half in the fridge and it should be fine for around one to two days (but no longer as you’ll be reheating something that’s been frozen).

Easy Freshers’ Recipes: Easy Chicken Pot Pies

By Elizabeth Pratt

I love to make these homemade pies. It’s a very simple recipe which produces multiple meals and can be altered with your choice of either a white or gravy sauce. You can also freeze the pies for a convenient meal that can be bunged in the oven at a later date.

The Vegan Guide to Eating Out in Norwich

By Emily Vause

Earlier this week I wrote the Vegetarian Guide to Eating Out in Norwich and got a terrific response!

You all seemed to get a lot from it but had one question – what about the vegans?

Although I listed a few vegan suggestions in the original article I wanted to give the vegan community a more comprehensive, entirely vegan, list of places to try.

The Vegetarian Guide to Eating Out in Norwich

By Emily Vause

So, you’ve just started at UEA, living in a brand-new city maybe, or maybe you’re a returner who hasn’t explored the Norwich food scene as much as you want to. Restaurants can be a daunting place for those on a Vegetarian (or Vegan) diet.

What if there’s nothing on the menu you can eat?

What if you just don’t want to order a superfood salad for the billionth time?

Why does everything have mushrooms in it?

These questions probably occur to all people on a meatless diet at some point in their lives but, luckily, Norwich is a great place for those of us more restricted students and they won’t break the bank!

Advice for Biologically Inclined Freshers: Where to Go on Campus to See the Best Wildlife.

By David Winlo

Hello and welcome to the University of East Anglia, and this, its online student life magazine, The Broad! If you’ve seen the university already on the internet or on one of its open days, you’ve probably seen an awful lot of concrete. Now don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy seeing the campus when I come in for lectures, but there can be times when particularly an ecology student like me, or another student of the BIO and ENV schools, can grow tired of man-made structures, and want to plan a little field trip for some respite.
