About The Worthing Wurlitzer

Sunday 19th November - Richard Hills will be playing the  Worthing WurliTzer Theatre Pipe Organ. Concert starts at 2:30pm.

For more information please see 

For those of you who are new to cinema and theatre organs, Wurlitzer pipe organs are historic musical instruments that were orginally designed to provide accompaniment to silent films in cimemas.  After the 'talkies' were invented, the instruments were used to provide music before and after film shows and during the interval.  Many cinema buildings were demolished in the latter half of the 20th Century but a number of the organs were saved and reinstalled in other buildings.  The Wurlitzer installed in the Assembly Hall at Worthing is just such an example and the excellent acoustics of the hall make the best of this organ's rich sounds.

CDs are available to purchase both before concerts and during the interval. We also have second hand vinyl records available. 

A huge collection of sheet music is available with advance notice - please email us at

Tickets can be purchase in advanced from the Box Office, telephone 01903 206206.

Doors open at 1:45pm.

Tea, coffee, cake and biscuits are available both before and after the concert; ice-creams are available during the interval.
