We hope to bring alive the whole decade in just 6 days We will be celebrating music, movies, fashions, TV, technology and inventions. We are planning a week of activities that will allow you to remissness, experience and fall in love with the fabulous 80’s whether it’s for the first time or all over again.
All over NORJAM there will be activities going on all day and all evening for your young people we want to make sure that our contingent leaders get an experience too.
Dare you walk around dressed as a stormtrooper, looking like Madonna or just looking like you come from the 80’s in bright neon colours? We have a day for every one of you and an evening of activities that relate to the infamous gameshows we all remember such as Play your Cards Right.
Do you fancy a sing along in our Karaoke Bar and a laugh with other leaders? See you at the leaders reception, share your wares on Monday night and raise some funds on Wednesday @ All the Fun of the Fair!
Kool & the Gang were on a “Celebration”, Micheal Jackson was dancing to “Thriller”, Culture Club were talking about a “Chameleon” and Queen wanted “to break free”. Berlin just “took my breath away” and Bon Jovi were just “Livin’ on a Prayer”.
Major events included “Who shot JR?”, the fall on the Berlin wall and the royal wedding of Prince Charles and lady Diana.
We got Happy meals, ET, Pac-man, and MTV to lighten things up.
80’s fashion also turned into an event with things like parachute pants, vans, rat-tails, Mohawk’s and spiked hair ? it was all about colour, size, and experimentation.
The highest-grossing films of the decade are: E. T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Return of the Jedi, The Empire Strikes Back, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Batman, Rain Man, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Top Gun, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Back to the Future Part II, “Crocodile” Dundee, Fatal Attraction and Beverly Hills Cop.
I’m Chris the 1980’s subcamp deputy leader. I am a guide leader in Norfolk and have been in guiding on and off since I was 7 years old. I have a silly sense of humour and love a laugh, particularly at myself.
I am ewok size, not short just fun size. Apart from being Jill’s deputy I am also the activities lead so come talk to me for fun and join us at the hub for our evening entertainments.
On Wednesday evening we are holding “All the fun of the fair!” a penny bizarre, bring suitable games or activities for everyone to get involved with, we hope to charge small amounts of money to donate to charity.
