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 October Concert
Janet Dowsett gave us a superb evening of music on Tuesday 17th October. She took us to Broadway for a selection from "Mary Poppins". There followed visits to the film world, a nostalgic selection of radio themes and puzzles to guess the songwriter of a selection of 6 songs. The music as always was played impeccably by Janet. Appropriately the evening concluded with "Time to Say Goodbye" which Janet played with great feeling. The audience left in great spirits with one lady saying "This was the best concert yet!" - praise indeed.
Our November concert features Chris Stanbury and takes place on Tuesday November 21st starting at 7.30 pm in St Peter’s Hall, The Broadway, Woodhall Spa, LN10 6ST. Admission for visitors is £7.00. Further information is available from the Chairman Philip Groves on 01526 353225, or visit the Society's website www.woodhallspa-organ.co.uk .
Nicholas Martin BEM voted in as President
At the Society's AGM held in August a proposal to invite Nicholas Martin to become President of the Society was voted in by an overwhelming majority. Nicholas said he was very honoured to accept and we all look forward to long association. Nicholas has had close ties with Woodhall Spa for many years. Back in 1986 he was the first organist to play the Compton Kinestra after its installation in The Kinema in the Woods in 1986. Nowadays he plays twice a month for dances at Coronation Hall in the village and he has a holiday static van at nearby Burgh le Marsh,
