Beth Britten et al. in London - 24 March, 1933

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 136:

After dinner Beth & I go to B.B.C. to see & hear Hindemith's Lesson.* V. amusing & witty, and with apparently a very deep philosopy underneath it, which I was quite oblivious of. Harry Tate & Co. were clowns & Tudor Davies, Arthur Cranmer, B.B.C. orch. wireless singers, Military Band, & Adrian Boult (in full form!).
