It was the time of the synthesizer, video games and cassette tapes, but what can you remember from Great Yarmouth in the 1980s?
During the decade the town received its first visit from the Queen, when the royal train pulled into Vauxhall Station prior to a visit to the town before heading to Lowestoft.
But the Queen wasn't the only celebrity to visit Yarmouth in the 1980s, with Eurovision legends Bucks Fizz performing in 1989, John Prescott visiting in 1988 with Cannon and Ball having arrived in 1981.
The town even starred on the small screen in 1988, when the Wish You Were Here team turned up to spotlight the town's tourism potential.
In 1985, the town's Debenhams department store - formerly Arnolds - closed down and Market Gates rose to popularity having opening in 1976.
