3 July 1937 - writer Christopher Isherwood takes his friend, the composer Benjamin Britten, then just 24, to the Jermyn Street Bathhouse to get drunk and have fun. There they meet Isherwood’s old friend, the poet W H Auden.

Based on Britten’s diaries, this is a glimpse into the friends’ relationship and experiences of London’s pre-war gay underworld. Very Pleasant Sensations celebrates the centenary of Britten’s birth.
