About North East Theatre Organ Association

For 38 years our Wurlitzer console rose from the depths of the orchestra pit in the New Victoria Theatre, Bradford to entertain patrons with musical interludes. Now installed in a specially converted building, the New. Vic. Organ plays once again, recreating the atmosphere of a different and more leisurely age. Since the organ was first played in its present home in 1986, many thousands of visitors have come along to enjoy the sights and sounds of the ‘Mighty’ Wurlitzer played by the finest exponents of the instrument. Now extensively restored, with the aid of a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, extra ranks of original Wurlitzer pipework have been added and other changes made to further enhance its versatility.

Did you know the Wurlitzer organ is available to NETOA members for private practice at a rate of £12.00 per hour? To make arrangements, or for further information, please contact Ian Bowman on 07824 162 202 or e-mail us here
