The licence of the DUKE OF FIFE was transferred to a new house on the Fairstead Estate October 1965.

`More than 200 men and women were taken for a ride on the evening of Saturday 4th May 1970. They were entertained by `` Gloria Glamour '', a former bus driver who performed the first drag act seen in a Kings Lynn pub...... '

Famed for being the first public house in East Anglia to have a topless female singer as entertainment in the lounge bar - Friday 13th November 1970
As a result `the best Friday night ever ..... It went down very well...... In this day and age people accept it. We hope to put on more of these shows.'
The story even made the National Press - well the Daily Sketch at least.
