CANCELLED – 7th April Southbank Centre – Behind the Scenes
This trip is an opportunity to gain an insight into the history of the Southbank Centre. Built for the Festival of Britain in 1951, it has hosted many international orchestras and artists. We’ll have access to the backstage areas usually reserved for the artists performing at the Centre. The guide will have a wealth of stories to entertain us with.
From Waterloo Station we’ll walk the short distance to the Festival Hall. This involves crossing roads and there’s a flight of steps up to the entrance. On arrival, there’ll be time for refreshments before our guided tour begins at 11am.
Date: Tuesday, 7 April Time/Meeting place: 10.15am,
