About Ascot Organ and Keyboard Club

ASCOT ORGAN AND KEYBOARD CLUB is a very friendly club that meets monthly. It has a reputation for being one of the friendliest and welcoming clubs in the country.

It holds a mixture of professional and amateur nights. The club tries to give younger artistes just starting on the circuit a chance as well as the "OLD" favourites. As you will see from our concert diary there is a good selection of top artistes covering many styles of music. Refreshments are included in the entrance fee so why not come along and hear some of the best professional organists play - or just listen to some of the local talent you didn't know existed!

The club is well run by a dedicated and hard working committee led by our Chairman Derek Saunders.

Chris Stanburyhas been our President since 2011. Chris's great talent and experience has been an inspiration to all our players and his offers of help in other ways has been greatly appreciated.

Quite a few of our members have their own organs or keyboards. All try to help each other where possible, and encourage each other to play at our amateur evenings, when players can bring along their own instruments (organs by prior arrangement with the Chairman) or play the club organ, a Technics GA1. A light hearted competition is held annually and awards are presented to the most improved and the most entertaining players. The club is always glad to welcome amateur players to show off their talents. Their family, friends and all those wishing to have an evening of live music in friendly surroundings are also welcome at all meetings. This includes members of other clubs who are visiting the area. In July the club holds a Summer Social with a fish & chip supper and a very relaxed atmosphere. This gives members who have not played before the chance to "have-a-go" with less pressure. The club has held many charity concerts over the years with entertainment provided by our amateur “Ascot All Stars”. This raises much needed funds for good causes and also promotes the club.In December the club has its legendary Christmas Party, at Carnation Hall, Winkfield, where we enjoy ourselves to the music of a professional player, dine from an extensive buffet provided by professional caterers, dance and enjoy the company.

The club is very well run by a dedicated and hard working committee. It has a reputation for being one of the friendliest and welcoming clubs in the country. 

The club usually meets on the third Friday of every month for a 7:45pm start, AGM 7.30pm start.
