As well as the EAST DEVON ORGAN CLUB, Sidmouth has it all. With its surrounding hills which keep winter's chill winds away, it is a town full of lovely old buildings and a seafront to savour. It has an uncluttered nineteenth century atmosphere, away from modern commercialism, it is indeed a first class town for people who enjoy the better class holiday, and first class music provided at the Organ Club.
The first meeting of the club was February 1984 under the name of "THE EAST DEVON KEYBOARD CLUB" and was first held in the nearby town of Colyford. This was changed to the present title during 1986 when the meetings were held in a pub "The Three Horseshoes" in Branscombe. It was during 1988 that the club moved to the present venue in Primley Road, Sidmouth. The present membership is around 35. Primley Road Hall can accomodate up to 100 persons. Visitors to the Club are always welcome.
Since the club is of a small nature it has gained the title of "The Friendly Club". At every concert evening the stage is "dressed"; suitable lighting of the stage area produces a concert atmosphere, enhanced with three colour change "Jelly Moulds" placed each side of the organ whilst being played. Concerts by professional artistes are held once a month from February to November, January being reserved for the AGM. During the half hour interval tea and coffee is served and a raffle is held, when a number of attractive prizes can be won.
The club usually meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 7.30pm
Members admission: £3.00
Visitors admission: £6.00
