Formed in 1966, as the Bournemouth branch of The Hammond Organ Society under the chairmanship of Mr. Sydney Webb, the interest was such that by late 1967 it was becoming clear that the appointment of a committee was desirable. The annual subscription at that time was set at 1 guinea for the first member with half a guinea for additional family members. Meetings were held in hotels in the Bournemouth area.
At a committee meeting in 1976, a recommendation was put forward that the Society's name be changed, and at the AGM that year the name of Bournemouth Electronic Organ Society was adopted. The new Society became autonomous at this time and free of any company association.
The move to the Allendale Centre in Wimborne took place on the 21st August 1979, with a membership of 145. The membership currently stands at around 130, and in January 2016 we moved to a superb new venue at Queen Elizabeth's School.
The Society owes its thanks to all the past Chairmen, Secretaries, Treasurers and committee members for their commitment and dedication, also to all members and visitors who have loyally supported us, and the artistes who have given us so much pleasure in the past.
At the AGM in October 2022 it was decided that the club needed a fresh image, with the hope of attracting a larger and younger audience, and the club has becaoe known as Bournemouth in Tune.
We continue to enjoy a healthy attendance after the Covid close down and can guarantee an enthusiastic response for visiting artistes. An invitation is warmly extended to everybody at every concert, pre-booking is not required.
