About Lancastrian Theatre Organ Trust - Heritage Centre

The Lancastrian Theatre Organ Heritage Centre was opened in 2006 after a four year total refurbishment of a former Methodist Sunday School involving many hours of work from a very committed team of volunteers.

The Centre is a mock up of a theatre from a bygone era. There is seating in the auditorium for 85 patrons. The Centre houses a 2/6 Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ and the first Theatre Organ museum in the U.K. It also contains the very first museum to exhibit the work of Robert Hope-Jones, the father of the Wurlitzer Theatre Organ as we now know it. Details on the Heritage Centre can be found on www.ltot.org.uk

The Centre is open on Wednesday, Friday and the first Saturday in each month; full details of opening hours are available on the web.

Weekly concerts are held at the Centre every Wednesday at 1-00pm. featuring well known and local artists.

The facilities of the Heritage Centre are available to anyone having an interest in the Cinem/Theatre and Theatre Organ. Presentations and tours can be arranged for Societies, Clubs, W.I., Rotary, Schools etc., plus the oportunity to have hands on experience of playing a Wurlitzer Theatre Organ. For further details please contact the Heritage Centre Manager, Roger Fisher, on 0161-792-1836. E-mail rcfgromit@btinternet.com
