You are listening to Radio South. Here is some information about a pop concert. The group Red River will come to London soon. They will be in London from the twenty-eighth of October to the second of November. Tickets are really dear—they cost thirty pounds each, but half of that money will go to a children’s hospital. To book a ticket, telephone two-eight-three, double 0-six-five between ten a.m. and five p.m. The London concerts will be in the South Bank Hall. It’s very easy to find. The best way to get there is to take the train, and it takes 40 minutes. The concert hall is in Trinity Street. That’s T-R-I-N-I-T-Y Street. See you there.
Boys and girls. I want to tell you about our school trip. We’re going to go on Saturday. I hope you can all come. As you know, we’re going to visit the film museum. There are lots of very interesting things there about the cinema and how films are made. We’ll have to leave at eight forty-five, so don’t be late. We’ll get there by bus. Please meet me in the car park.
What next? Oh yes, the cost. It’ll be six dollars seventy each. Now, I’m going to give you some work to do at the museum. You’ll needs to write things down, so take a pencil and a notebook with you. We’ll have lunch in the museum restaurant, so you needn’t bring any food with you. Well, I think that’s everything.
