in Royal Festival Hall - the 1950's
from Southbank Centre Archive:
In my early teens I used to be taken to concerts at the Festival Hall by my grandmother who loved Bruckner. I remember fighting to stop my eyes closing and falling asleep on her shoulder - the seats were so comfortable and the ambience so warm. She also had a stock of barley sugar sweets in her bag in case of coughs.
