After having informed everyone that the organ was to be playing again on the North Pier in Blackpool once more for the 2011 Summer Season we have now been informed by the management of the Pier that the organ will not be required for the season.
Pier organist, David Windle although obviously disappointed will still be the Musical Director for the Michael Barrymore show as previously mentioned but sadly not as an organist.
