On p.1 - A.R.P. (air raid precaution) notice: There is complete Air Raid accommodation in the basement of the Hall and the corridors. Shelters are also available at the West End (St John's Church) and in Rutland Square. In the event of an air raid an announcement will be made from the platform.

Several of the pieces are a little difficult to identify: Bach's 'gavotte in E', for example, might be the final movement from Bach's wedding cantata, BWV 202, but this is not certain. The 'variations from suite in G' by Tchaikovsky is probably the final movement, a set of variations, from the orchestral suite no. 3 in G,  op. 55.
