Owing to the restoration and re-tuning of the Father Willis organ during 2019, there is no availability for booking Informal Concerts during the second half of 2019. The Father Willis Organ will be back in working order from March 2020. For more information regarding the organ restoration, click here.

We receive many requests to put colour filters on our floodlights in support of various good causes, and from time to time have done this in the past. But, we have not been satisfied with the results and are not currently doing this.
