1. Handbills/programmes
Each folder includes a large number of handbills/programmes for performances given at the Hinde Street [Methodist] Church, Marylebone and at Trinity College of Music.

Those at the former were typically chamber/small-ensemble performances, including repertory from early music through to jazz. Those at Trinity College were generally described as Students' Concerts/Workshops.

In some cases, a specific location within the College is cited, including the Barbirolli Lecture Theatre and, less frequently, the Bantock Room.

Documentation for these venues is largely limited to handbills/single-sheet programmes, although these are occasionally supplemented with additional notes/wordsheets. All programmes provide detailed information regarding the performers, including, where appropriate, lists of the chamber ensembles.

2. Programme books
All folders also includes programme books for larger-scale performances (choral and orchestral), given by ensembles associated with Trinity College, such as the Symphony Orchestra, Sinfonia, Chamber Orchestra and Chorus.

The most consistently cited venues are as follows:
- St. Martin-in-the-Fields
- St. James's Church, Sussex Gardens
- St. James's Church, Piccadilly
- St John's Smith Square
- Southwark Cathedra

These documents typically including historical, descriptive and biographical notes. Many include photographs and some provide lists of the choral and/or orchestral ensembles.

3. Theatrical/operatic productions
In addition to concert programmes, the first five of these folders include documentation for theatrical and/or operatic productions, including those by the Moveable Theatre Ensemble and the Music Theatre Group, given at the Rudolf Steiner Theatre, London.
