About Verwood in Tune

The society's forerunner, "The Verwood & District Organ Society" was formed in 1994 after a handful of enthusiasts agreed there would be enough support to form a new society, without adversely affecting four others, which existed within a fifteen mile radius of Verwood.

A committee was formed and the organist Chris Powell was invited to play the inaugural concert in February 1995. The society grew at a surprising rate & very soon had a membership of 220. At the 2001 AGM the name was changed to The Verwood Organ & Keyboard Society.

In recent years Verwood, has been recognised as the fastest growing area in Europe, from a village of twelve hundred inhabitants to a town of 15,000+. This has resulted in several developments including a new £3m Community Centre now known as the "Verwood HUB", within which is the Merrifield Theatre containing tiered seating for 300 people, a large stage with state of the art lighting and audio equipment, a licensed bar and refreshment area etc

The Society's initial venue was the "Verwood Memorial Hall", but with the opening of the Verwood HUB, the Society ran a series of concerts at the new venue over a period of several months during 2007. Members were given a chance at the 2008 AGM to express their preference of venue for future concerts. This resulted in a two to one vote in favour of relocating from the "Memorial Hall" to the new theatre at the "HUB". With the larger venue concerts are now open to the general public - there's always space!  The Society prides itself on being a 'Happy Society' that draws its strength by working together as a friendly Committee - a point that has been noted and commented upon many times by visiting artistes.

We hold  monthly concerts -  on the last Wednesday of the month.  Please note there are no January or December concerts.

2018 Concerts start at 7.30pm (doors open at 7pm).

From 2019 Concerts will start at 2.00pm (doors open at 1.30pm).

Admission: £8
