Grand Matinee was organised in the City Hall in Cardiff in aid of St Dunstan's Hostel. The entry ticket was printed on paper with the stamp. The ticket is not complete as the right side was torn out probably during the entry to the venue and there is only half of the stamp present. The ticket is 9 cm long and 6.5 cm high. It is numbered and provides information about the date, time, and reserved seated space for the ticket holder.

St Dunstan's was founded by Sir Arthur Pearson as the Blinded Soldiers' and Sailors' Care Committee in 1915. It provided care and rehabilitation to those blinded in the First World War. Nowadays, known as Blind Veterans UK, it cares for all veterans and ex-Service men and women who have lost their sight through accident, illness, or old age, providing training, rehabilitation and lifelong support for those that live in one of the charity three centres or independently.
