The Jubilee of Penny Postage
Guildhall Music Programme
16th May, 1890

Three programmes of music, in addtition to the Band & Guard of Honor at the entrance, were presented on the first evening. The Coldstream Guards' Band played at the west end of the main hall at 8 PM, and at 10 PM Willoughby's Band performed in the smaller Art Gallery.

In the dodecagon of the Council Chamber, the Post Office choir made two presentations, the first also at 8 PM and the second at 10 PM. The Post Office Choir performances with "some slight modifications" would be repeated on evenings of the 17th and 19th in the same location. I do not know if a third programme for those two nights was produced.

A 132mm x 230mm programme was handed out for those who attended the Post Office Choir performances on the night of the 16th May. A similar programme was created for the performances in the Guildhall and Art Gallery.
