in Royal Festival Hall - 1951

from Southbank Centre Archive:

In 1951 I was a seven year old in St Thomas's Hospital for a month.  My parents visited me and told me about the Festival Hall and how it was growing.  I saw it when I was discharged and on 'out patients' visits.  I later came up with my junior school to the Saturday morning children's concerts.  We came by coach and it was a great introduction to the Festival Hall.S
