Dear Organ Fans.
A friend of mine has suggested that I write to you all to say how much I have enjoyed my very FIRST ORGAN FESTIVAL. I have recently been to Sand Bay near Weston-Super-Mare to a “Music for All” festival organised by Byron Jones. I have never been so entertained in my life! The organists both male & female were worthy of the highest praise, and the Grand Piano specially hired for the occasion was a touch of culture to us all. The event covered three and a half days, with a full programme of Music Seminars, Dancing and organ concerts, only interrupted by Breakfast, Lunch and Evening Dinner served to ones table in the very well appointed restaurant (just how did they manage to serve 500 people in less than an hour!) and boy, what a selection.
It is worthy to note that there was a very good raffle table with some 50 prizes, and I notice that all the prize money collected from Byron’s events goes to a chosen charity each year, this year a cheque for £1,340.00 went to B.U.S.T. and looking at Byron’s Charity & Press cuttings book I was amazed to see that he has collected well over £12,000 for various charities in the last 8 Years.
Regards to All
