Exciting News From Yorkshire!

Kevin Grunill announces an exciting programme of events in West Yorkshire this Spring with exciting news of a brand new theatre organ venue!

The Astoria Centre near Barnsley has become the new home of the Sheffield Compton; which was featured in concert for many years at its previous home in the city.  The multi purpose new venue will see regular concerts, tea dances and will also be a rare setting for budding players to get real 'hands-on' experience of a theatre pipe organ.

The official grand opening takes place with the BBC's very own Nigel Ogden on Saturday March 12th followed by a special open day on the Sunday.

The concerts at the Astoria following on from this will supplement the already popular series taking place with the amazing Allen instrument in nearby Penistone and also the famous ex Odeon Birmingham Compton which is installed in the nearby Paramount Cinema in the town.

Kevin is to be congratulated for all his hard work in keeping these historic instruments in A1 condition for countless generations to enjoy and we wish him and the team every success with a superb programme of fantastic artistes and events during 2016!
