Sunday 25th November 3pm -  Saint Saens Organ Concerto performed with the Worthing Philharmonic Society.

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.

Sunday afternoon concerts (please note that the Philharmonic concert starts at 3pm)

Tickets can be purchased in advance from the Box Office 01903 206206.

Doors open at 1:45pm. Tea, coffee, cake and biscuits are available both before the concert and during the interval. Ice creams are on sale during the interval.
