About Bay Organ and Keyboard Society. (Morecambe)

On Wednesday 27th March 2013 members held a dinner at the Srathmore Hotel Morecambe to celebrate the 40th anniversary of  the society, after the meal a free raffle was held befor the cutting of the anniversary cake,  for the rest of the evening the entertainment was provided volunteers playing a Tyros 4.       

The Society was formed in 1973 by enthusiasts who gathered in each other's homes and decided to expand their hobby. Helped by the then Furness Organ Society, rules were established, a home found at the Netherwood Hotel, and meetings held the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. Organ dealers brought in organs and taught the basics of playing. Visits to pipe organs were shared with the Furness Organ Society and tea dances held to raise funds. Eventually the Society bought its own instrument with money borrowed from members. Membership grew (although remaining small with a maximum membership of 51 in 1985) as word spread across South Cumbria and North Lancashire. In 2007 the society changed its name from THE GRANGE ORGAN SOCIETY to THE BAY ORGAN & KEYBOARD SOCIETY  and move to the venue below. The full history of the socety can be found on our web site www.baymusic.co.uk
