The Woodhall Spa & District Organ Society has been in existence for over 25 years, to promote and encourage interest in electronic and theatre organs, both from the playing and listening viewpoint, and generally promote the Woodhall Spa & District Organ Society for the benefit of its members and guests. To widen our appeal we now promote our concerts under the name of "MUSIC FOR WOODHALL".
We hold monthly concerts given by some of the top organists from this country and abroad. They are held on the third Tuesday of the month in St Peters Hall, The Broadway, Woodhall Spa. Lincs LN10 6ST
We actively encourage members of the public to come along to our concerts, to join in with what we know is a friendly relaxing atmosphere, where we hope they will all enjoy the music. St Peters Hall can seat up to 140 people and we currently have audience figures varying between 70 and 100 at each concert. We have a membership of over 80 people.
We have the use of a fully equipped kitchen to allow us to provide a wide range of refreshments at our concerts.
Our stage has a remotely controlled colour lighting system. Closed Circuit Colour Television cameras allow the audience to see close up views of both the keyboard and pedal board via a large screen projection system.
Comfortable seating completes the experience of a relaxing and enjoyable evening while listening to some of the top artistes available.
Our July Concert
Penny Weedon made a welcome return after an absence of some 9 years and played a brilliant concert for us. Very individual in style there was a hidden thread running through the programme which Penny revealed as being the titles followed the letters of the alphabet.
So popular was her medley of themes from the Grieg Piano Concerto, that she played "Morning" from Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite in the second half. Woodhall Spa had its famlous 40's weekend immediately before Penny's concert, so she played a very entertaining medley of forties tunes to celebrate. She finished her first half with a great performance of Lord of the Dance. In the second half she produced a small Accordion and played with a pre recorded accompaniment a typical Bavarian Polka. A lively Singalong of popular Show tunes followed and Penny rounded off the evening with "Nimrod" from Elgar's "Enigma Variations". All in all a very enjoyable evening.
Our August concert features David Thomas and takes place on Tuesday August 15th starting at 7.30 pm in St Peter’s Hall, The Broadway, Woodhall Spa, LN10 6ST. Admission for visitors is £7.00.
