from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 108:

Practise Pft. in aft. Go up to Hawkes after tea & get Kodaly's Psalmus Hungaricus - marvelous work. Beth goes to Hampstead to play tennis with Kathleen Mead after tea. I listen to a Vaudeville on wireless and write letters after dinner.
