Over the weekend of 14th & 15th November, the Penistone Cinema Organ Trust are holding two events which will be of interest to theatre organ enthusiasts.
On Saturday 14th November, Nigel Ogden will be presenting an afternoon of musical entertainment on the fine four manual Compton, installed in the Penistone Paramount (S36 6DY). The event commences at 2.30pm and doors open at 1.45pm. Tickets are priced at £8.00 and can be purchased via the Penistone Paramount Website or on the door.
On Sunday 15th November, the trust will be holding an open day at The Astoria Centre at Metro Trading Centre, Barugh Green Road, Barnsley S75 1JT. The centre is now the home of a 3/17 Compton organ, which has been totally restored and installed over the past 4 years or so. Visitors will be able to tour the spacious organ pipe chambers and hear the organ being played by Kevin Grunill during this informal event. Opening times are 12.30pm - 4.30pm and the Compton will be featured every hour on the hour. Light refreshments will be available. Admission £5.00.
