The Royal Festival Hall was opened in the 1950s and the architects were very keen that it should be a meeting place for all, which is why it doesn't have different bars for different classes so reminiscent of the earlier eras, just large open areas for everyone to enjoy together.
“Thank you and your colleagues at CPBS for your help in organising the party on the Golden Flame. My committee and I were impressed by the efficient welcome and service we encountered from the crew the whole function ran very smoothly. People I spoke to said that they had enjoyed themselves thoroughly and that they greatly appreciated the boat ride down the Thames. Such a tremendous success!”David from UCL, Golden Flame, 24th March
