It's my birthday today too! I was just reminded of my first visit to the Albert Hall to see 'The Burning Fiery Furnace'. I was probably only about 15 years old at the time and happily paid my five shillings ticket to stand in the gods and watch the performance. I cannot upload an image as at the time there were no mobile phones... I have been many times since . The last time I went was in 2015 and just before the performance began the cork from my bottle of champagne exploded with a loud pop. Everybody in the auditorium was momentarily silent and then resumed chatting. I never saw the cork again!
