The Club’s origins go back to 1973 when 2 local musicians called a public meeting at the Springfield Social Club in Anlaby Common, Hull. An Organ Club was founded, although it’s name wasn’t the Springfield in those days.
After about 5 changes of venue, a brief dissolvement, a restoration and a name change we have the Club as it is today. We meet monthly at the Willows Club on Holderness Road, Hull, where we have a large, pleasant concert room. There is ample car parking and the club is on a good bus route.
We present 8 concerts per with professional artists, and 4 members nights per year when people can bring their own keyboards, (or play some one else’s) to show their skills and entertain their fellow members. These evenings are a relaxed, social nights, we call them, “Nice & Easy Nights”
The Club has 2 trophies. A Silver Cup awarded in the original days of the club by Mr J.P.Cornell, a well known musician and organ dealer. This cup is competed for I each September and is awarded to the best player on the night. The other trophy is a Shield in memory of a previous long serving treasurer of the club and is awarded to the player who is judged to have made the most progress over the past year. In both cases the Committee are the judges.
We have our own video set-up for use on concert nights and our own amplification equipment for members nights.
Everyone is welcome to come along.
Admission to a concert is £5 for members, £5.50 for guests, although if a guest is a member of another Organ club they can pay £5.
Members nights are £2.
