in Royal Festival Hall - at the end of the 1950's

from Southbank Centre Archive:

I remember Dudley Moore's first ever solo performance (for charity) in one of the recital rooms. This would have been around 1959 and it was sheer joy.I knew then that I was seeing a star in the making.The reason I attended was that I had already seen him as the pianist with the Johnny Dankworth orchestra.
