The best Dad in the world.

Pauline Hardinge

My father worked at the Royal Albert Hall for 22 years, he was presented to the Queen Mother for his long time service. He used to get two free complimentary tickets to every show, therefore I used to see a diversity of shows from the Russian Army, proms, John Lennon and Yoko Ono performing in a bed! - to many pop groups. We used this photograph when my father died to commemorate his death - he loved working at the Hall and I loved visiting it and still do, it has such lovely memories of when my dad worked there.
