Abergele is an old Roman trading town, situated near the North Wales coast between the popular holiday resorts of Colwyn Bay and Rhyl, in the county borough of Conwy. Abergele is generally ignored due to the popularity of nearby Rhyl, Prestatyn, Colwyn Bay, Llandudno and Conwy.
The town itself lies on the A55 road and is known for Gwrych Castle. The town is surrounded by wooded hillsides, which contain caves with rare lesser horseshoe bats. The highest hill is Moelfre Isaf (1038 ft) to the south of the town. Approximately 29% of Abergele has a significant knowledge of the Welsh language.
Abergele Organ Society began in 1985 at the Abergele British Legion with resident compere / singer "Jack" Stewart as Chairman. The Society continued there until 2003 when "The Legion" building was closing. The organ society committee decided that the organ society was still a viable operation and should continue. The move to the Kinmel Manor Hotel in May 2003 was enabled in no small way by the efforts and energy of the new Chairman, Sq Ldr John McGrory Rtd. (M.B.E).
The Kinmel Manor Hotel provides luxurious facilities. There are bars, ample secure free parking and good wheel chair access. Our concerts are usually held in the ballroom.
