Norman and Beard built our three manual pipe instrument in 1904.  Situated in a gallery on the south side of the chancel, it sounds as good today as when it was built. It has 23 speaking stops, including diapasons, flutes, oboe, clarinet, horn, and trumpet. There are also 9 couplers, 12 thumb pistons and 4 foot pistons.  Our organ recitals really show off its versatility - and of course it does much to enhance the music at our services.  Further details of the organ can be found here (index number N16116)

Informal recitals are usually held once a month (not during the winter months) at 8:00 pm.  On these Sundays there is a Choral evensong at 6:30 pm followed by refreshments at 7:20 pm.  In addition there are some daytime concerts some of which may be accompanied by some form of refreshments.

Recitals are mostly given on the organ, but sometimes will be performed on the piano or by a local Recorder consort.  For Sunday Evening recitals, a donation towards the Organ Fund is requested.  We suggest a donation of £5:00 including the supper or £3:00 for just the recital.

The 2017 recitals have finished now.  So far we have one provisional date for 2018, others will be added, please check back later.
