in Royal Festival Hall - the 1950's

from Southbank Centre Archive:

1. I attended two concerts in the opening week. One was Myra Hess playing the piano.     2. Also in the Fifties I trained as a nurse at St Thomas's and attended our annual ball at the Festival Hall.    3.  I also visited the Festival of Britain.
