'First opened as “The People’s Palace” in 1873, Alexandra Palace provided the Victorians with a great environment and recreation centre. Just sixteen days after its opening, the Palace, which had already attracted over 120,000 visitors, was destroyed by a fire in the dome. On 1st May 1875, less than 2 years after the destruction of the original building, a new Palace opened. Covering 7 acres, it was centred on the Great Hall, home to the mighty Willis Organ which was driven by two steam engines and vast bellows ... Just six months after the transfer of trusteeship to Haringey Council, on 10th July 1980, the Palace caught fire for the second time ... Only Palm Court and the area occupied by the BBC escaped damage. Development and restoration work began soon after and the Palace was re-opened on 17th March 1988. It continues as a Charitable Trust administered by the London Borough of Haringey.'

'The recitals are held in what used to be the great hall of a late Jacobean house designed and built by Sir Roger Townshend with his Master Mason William Edge. Later paved in marble by William Kent and embellished in the C18th style, this room epitomises the dual spirit of Raynham Hall. Lofty, elegant and flooded with light it also has a clear but gentle resonance which is perfect for the intimate chamber music presented at the Raynham Recitals.'

'Set majestically on the banks of the River Thames, The Mill at Sonning Theatre now celebrates more than 30 years of entertainment. Uniquely, as the only dinner theatre in the United Kingdom, it has gained unrivalled praise both nationally and internationally ... When the mill closed in 1969, it was one of the last flour mills on the Thames driven by wheels. The new port mill at Tilbury had opened and Sonning, being much smaller could not compete economically. Also, one of Sonning’s major customers, Huntley and Palmers, stopped making biscuits in Reading ... The Mill is completely self-sufficient. No sponsors, no grants - not a penny of tax-payers' money supports us. We live on your patronage at our box office.'
