In the light of the Covid-19 crisis, we have had to postpone the concert we had planned to mark National Organ Day on 18th April, which coincides with World Heritage Day.
National Organ day is an initiative by the Royal College of Organists (RCO) as the centrepiece to a year of outreach, promoting the organ as an instrument and improving access to those interested in learning to play.
The RCO appealed to every building in the UK which houses an organ to open its doors, creating a unique opportunity for people to hear and explore the wealth of organs, large and small, to be found throughout the UK.
Whilst our wonderful Hunter organ is being restored, we have a small ‘continuo’ organ in the church which we had hoped would be played at our concert. This was generously donated to the project by FH Browne & Sons, the project’s organ restorers. The continuo is currently up for sale; all funds will go towards supporting our activities. If you are interested in purchasing the organ, do get in touch.
