Mary Berry in Royal Pavilion, Brighton - 13 December, 1811
from Diary of Mary Berry, 13 December 1811, page 490:
Went with Lady Charlotte to hear the military band in the Prince’s Pavilion. Luckily, we only heard two pieces, for the noise of so many loud instruments in a room (the dining-room) which could hardly hold them, was not a remedy for my headache.
