There is a prospectus from the North East Regional Orchestra: the advertised concerts took place at City Hall and the Odeon Theatre. There are programmes from concerts given as part of the Guildford Orchestral Subscription Concerts and the Bradford Music Club: these programmes do not specify concert venues. There is also a programme from “Polytechnic Hall”, where the geographic location is not specified. However, other evidence on the programme suggests the venue is located in or around Woolwich. Similarly, there is a programme from an unspecified venue, where iconographic and other evidence suggests the concert took place in or around the tower or Winter Gardens in Blackpool. There are three programmes where venue is not specified on the programme, but tickets loosely inserted in the programmes state that the venue of the concert was City Hall, Newcastle. There is also another programme where the venue is unspecified.
