in Royal Festival Hall - the 1950's

from Southbank Centre Archive:

I used to go to the organ recitals on Sundays, my girlfriend and I used to pretend or think we were very intellectual and hang around the coffee bar as it was then!  I would also go every Easter to the Bach St Matthews Passion and take my sandwiches.  It was brilliant!
