1st October 2017 2pm - 80th Birthday Special Event Open Day featuring Richard Hills
We are delighted to present a special 80th birthday celebration of the Guildhall and its wonderful Compton organ on 1st October at 2pm. This amazing building and the unique Compton organ opened in 1937 and to celebrate we are presenting an afternoon of information, demonstrations, views of the organ chambers, a chance to 'have a go' and a performance by the one and only Richard Hills!
Included in the event will be a presentation with slides and video about the organ, its history and how it works, plus a live roving camera in the organ chambers (which has never been done before!). We will demonstrate the different sounds and ensembles on the instrument and Maestro Richard Hills will show you what it can do from about 4.30pm.
The whole event will last til about 6pm.
Make sure you put the date in your diary, tell your friends & colleagues and try to be there!
