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
Pete Shaw was our artist for July. Making a long overdue debut at Woodhall Spa, Pete set about giving us an evening to remember. Most of the first half of his concert was filled with an amazing medley of tunes from the shows and the occasional film. There were tunes from West Side Story, the Jersey Boys, Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera and many, many more too numerous to mention. All were played in his very individual style and with great feeling. The second half was more conventional and included the March from Thunderbirds, plus some very convincing immitations of the key characters! He also played a piece featuring music by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. this contained the most amazing foot pedal solo which drewt a huge round of applause from the audience. He concluded his concedrt with two marches - 633 Squadron and the Dambusters. A really brilliant evening of entertainment.
Our August concert will be feature a return visit by Chris Stanbury and takes place on Tuesday evening 20th August at St Peter's Hall, The Broadway, Woodhall Spa, LN10 6ST, starting at 7.30 pm.
