Welcome to the Lowestoft and District Organ and Keyboard Club now in it’s 41st year!! Our venue is The Parkhill Hotel, Oulton, Lowestoft NR32 5DQ. We have use of two wonderful old buildings, The Barn for our Professional Concerts and The Coach House for our Player’s and Social evenings, both being equipped to hold such events as our Club.

We meet on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 6.30pm for a 7pm start and 9.30pm finish. Refreshments are served during the interval but other drinks can be purchased anytime from the Hotel bar.

Professional Concerts are held on the Second Tuesday of each month, except December and January, when Club Specials are organised by the Committee and generally include a Buffet.  Admission :- £ 6.00

Players' and Social evenings 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.  Also we have occasional use of a member's digital piano Kawai MP5.  Admission:- £ 3.00

Annual Club Subscription of £6.00. On receipt of the subscription, each member will be 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 special events for members only.

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. Many people come along and listen to the music and enjoy the social occasion. Several of our members, including one of the Committee, don't play at all. while others play at home, but choose not to play at the Club.

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, enjoy the music and the social ambiance.

Please note Cancellation of Player's and Social evenings from March 24th 2020 until further notice, due to Government advice concerning the corona virus outbreak.
