About Lowestoft and District Organ and Keyboard Club

 

Welcome to the Lowestoft and District Organ and Keyboard Club now in its 44th year!!

Our venue is The Parkhill Hotel, Oulton, Lowestoft NR32 5DQ, where we have use of a wonderful old building, The Barn, for our Professional Concerts and Player’s and Social afternoons. The Barn is fully equipped to hold Club events and there is ample space for parking. 

We meet on the Second and Fourth Tuesday of each month at 1.30 for 2.00pm start and finishing at 4.30pm. Refreshments are served during the interval (additional charge). 

Professional Concerts are held on the Second Tuesday of each month (except December, when a Club Special that generally includes a buffet is organised by the Committee).  Admission:-  £7.00.

Players' and Social afternoons are held on the Fourth Tuesday of each month. Members and visitors have the opportunity and are encouraged to play the Club's own Yamaha TRX Organ System with pedals.  We also have occasional use of a member's digital piano. Admission:-  £3.00.

Annual Club Subscription of £10.00. On receipt of the subscription fee, each member is issued with a LOAK Club membership card which gives information concerning the Club plus the next 12 month’s programme. The subscription is not compulsory but does enable you to vote on any future Club decisions that may be needed, and to be included in any “members only” special events. 

We are a very friendly Club and always welcome visitors from other Clubs and new members. Although we are an Organ and Keyboard Club you don't have to play to join us. Several of our members don't play at all while others play at home, but choose not to play at the Club. Many people just come along to meet new friends, listen to the music and enjoy the social occasion.

The Concert list below, shows visiting artists who play a full range of music types from old time, jazz, musicals, classical modern and so much more. If you wish to “try us out” your admission charge is free. This is your chance to sit back, relax and enjoy the music and the social ambiance.

Our Club is fully up and running again following the removal of the COVID-19 restrictions.
