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 JANUARY CONCERT WITH CHRIS POWELL

Unfortunately a combination of very cold weather and fears over the current wave of Covid took its toll on our audience for Chris P{owell's excellent concert. However, in spite of the lower numbers the atmosphere was electric and everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable evening, including Chris!

He played a very varied selection ranging from Viennese music, which included "The Radetsky March", Abba, "Les Miserables" to name just a few. He also played a beautiful rendering of John Barry's "Somewhere in Time" which had been requested by one of our members who can no longer get to the concerts, due to health problems. We also had a couple of medleys of Theatre Organ music during the evening, which was rounded off by his customary visit to "The Last Night of the Proms". All in all a great evening of entertainment.

OUR FEBRUARY CONCERT

 Elizabeth Harrison will be playing our February concert. Elizabeth was due to play the December date, but had to withdraw due to Covid isolation rules. We look forward to hearing her concert on February 4th.

Further information is available from our Chairman Philip Groves on 01526 353225 or visit www.woodhallspa-organ.co.uk.
