Aylesford Organ Restoration

The organ is now 150 years old, and the restoration project is complete! Many thanks are due to all those who have supported this in so many different ways; it has been a real inspiration seeing what can be done as a team!

The opening service took place on 28th June, and the organ is settling down nicely now. We are therefore planning a weekend of organ activity in November, with an opening recital by a visiting organist (to be announced) on the Saturday evening, and activities including "Discover the organ" on the Sunday. The dates to put in your diary are: Saturday & Sunday 14-15 November 2015. Further recitals will follow in 2016 - we already have some of the top UK organists lined-up!

The updated History of the Organ book is currently approaching final draft, and should be on sale (or nearly so) for the organ weekend - it covers much, much more than just the history of Aylesford organ, and at around 100 pages, plus photographs, will cost about £15.00; pre-order your copy now, or even copies for Christmas presents!
