I think I was about 7 on my first visit. I sat in the gallery and was amazed at the size of the auditorium. It was a Salvation Army event and over the years (I am over 80) I have been to many such events. Also to classic concerts and most years to the National Brass Band contest. This place has so many happy and precious memories for me and I hope a few more in the future.
