in Royal Festival Hall - the 1950's

from Southbank Centre Archive:

Waiting for the ropes at the foot of the stairs to be removed 30 minutes before the concert began. All Klemperer's concerts. All Beecham's concerts. The excellent Festival Hall coffee. 'Point Counterpoint' at the back of the slim monthly concert diary, contrasting the critics' views.
