Seeing the "Hall" reminds me of queuing, usually on a Sat night for downstairs.
If you were near the front you queued in the "tunnel", no light at all and a strong smell of diesel (or something similar). Such a relief to be allowed in.
Those for "upstairs". (Hell that was 1/3d) Queued outside which was much better except when it rained (No, not in Tredegar)
The pic of Ivor's coach also brought back memories

and of course see link below for the Starlight Parade shows there till 1981 - many happy memories - can still recall the firm instructions not to lean on the walls as we lined up backstage- otherwise we'd be covered in coal dust!! That passage way where we waited to walk on stage was always freezing!

Memories are made of these.....
