Former Regal cinema Uxbridge

Project: Cosmetic restoration of the organ console

Summary: HWS were commissioned to cosmetically restore the lovely French-style Compton organ console in the former cinema in Uxbridge. We returned it to natural polished wood finish and the keys were recovered. The console took a prominent position on display in the newly refurbished venue, which is now a night club.

It is hoped that money can also be found in due course to restore the pipework, which is all still in place, and to once again get this very nice organ playable.

The pictures below tell the story of how bad a state the console was in before we started and how well it has come up - a testament to the fine craftsmanship from the Compton factory.
