Wings Concert CancelledWings Concert Cancelled

Monday 7th November

The proposed performance of 'Wings' with Donald MacKenzie on Saturday 12th November at the Odeon Leicester Square has been cancelled due to a flood in the back stage area of the cinema. This has affected the world famous 'Duchess' Compton organ, not severely, but enough that it was necessary to cancel the event on this occasion. All involved are very disappointed but are sure it won't be long before the Duchess is singing away again.

Sunday 6th November

We have been contacted by Ken in Llanfairfechan, North Wales who has asked if we can find a new owner for this beautiful old church pipe organ. It is believed to have been made by Alfred Slater and has 2 manuals with 58 keys.

The instrument has seen better days but would still make a fabulous restoration project or its parts could be used to perhaps help rebuild another. If interested please contact us here at OrganFax and we will put you in touch with the owners.
