About Woodhall Spa and District Organ Society

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".

The “Music for Woodhall” concerts, hosted by the Woodhall Spa and District Organ Society have moved to Coronation Hall, Spa Road, Woodhall Spa, LN10 6PZ and will be held on the first Friday of the month.

We had not planned for this move, but events conspired to cause us to find an alternative venue and Coronation Hall was available on the first Friday of each month. We appreciate that this will mean concerts will take place on a different night of the month, but we feel that after such a long period of absence, when all our routines have been disrupted, the change will be easier for us all to accommodate.

Coronation Hall will offer us many advantages.  From the audience point of view there is a decent sized car park available, which is floodlit at night and is also covered by CCTV with 24 hour recording.  Access to the hall is on the level with no steps to negotiate. The hall is warm and comfortable. It is equipped with a nice Kitchen with a serving counter adjacent to a lounge area with comfortable seating. We will have the option to layout small tables and chairs, cabaret style, for the audience if we wish, or in rows as we do now.  The stage is fitted with an LED lighting system, complete with control desk, which will greatly reduce the rigging time and the organists have a pleasant dressing area behind the stage.

OUR JULY CONCERT WITH MARK THOMPSON

We had a great audience for Mark Thompson with 57 people attending. They were not disappointed as Mark played a superb evening of music ranging across the whole spectrum from Strauss to Jazz! We had love songs including Elvis Presley's "Always on my Mind", "The Cosshandds Boogie", a sizzling Samba as well as John Williams' "Jurassic Park". There was a Dixieland medley and the Johnny Pearson music for Owen MD - "Sleepy Shores". His second half featured the waltz by Anthony Hopkins  called "And the Waltz Goes On" played in the Andre Rieu style, swiftly followed by The "Trish Trash Polka" by Strauss. We had a beautiful version of "Concierto de Aranjuez" , commonly called "Orange Juice" as featured in the film "Brassed Off"" and he concluded the evening with a really exciting selection of Rock and Roll. Following clamours for an encore Mark obliged appropriately with "We'll Meet Again", which we certainly hope we will. All in all a really exciting evening of great music, beautifully played.

OUR AUGUST CONCERT WITH JON SMITH

Our August concert  will be held on Friday August 5th . The concert is being given by JON SMITH  and is certain to be a great evening of entertainment.  We hope as many of you as possible will be able to come along. The concert is on Friday, August 5th  at 7.30pm at Coronation Hall, Woodhall Spa, Spa Road, LN10 6PZ. We look forward to seeing you.
