Promoting the Theatre Organ -The Way Forward What is the future of the theatre organ? Who cares?

Join a special FREE one-day conference organised by the Cinema Organ Society to exchange ideas and thoughts about spreading the word about theatre organ (and electronic organ) entertainment for the years ahead.

The conference takes place on Saturday 20th February 2010, between 11.30 to 17.00 at the Victoria Hall, Saltaire, West Yorkshire.

• How can we encourage more people to attend events?

This is a unique opportunity to share your ideas with friends and colleagues at a major conference to discuss opportunities and challenges in the convivial surroundings of the superb Victoria Hall in Saltaire – a World Heritage Site.

To round things off there will be a spectacular theatre organ spot by top american organist KEN DOUBLE at the Saltaire Wurlitzer. Why not stay on after the conference? There’s a full programme of other events to complete your enjoyment of the weekend.
