Pipe down at the back

Not that we were bellowing or anything, but the Nigel, from the NW section, pulled out all the stops and arranged a magnificent afternoon of Organ Music in the unlikely setting of a garage in Thorpe, near to Ashbourne.
The beautiful art deco Compton Organ, is available for functions as well as for the many concerts that allow vsiting organists to perform. The installation of the organ, which once held pride of place in Derby’s ABC Cinema, and its restoration was the dream of one man, Dave Thorp. I recommend a visit to their website here where you can read all about it, and listen to the organ in actionand then pedal on down to one of the many concerts planned throught the year.
