Gainsborough Organ Society’s premier event of their year, their annual Christmas Concert, will take place this Sunday (14th December) at the Weston Rooms on Hickman Street.

And heading the bill or performers will be world-rated organist Nicholas Martin, who has played for the society on many occasions, will be performing.

Fascinated by the organ since he heard the famous Wurltizer in the Blackpool Tower Ballroom as a boy in 1969, Nick was resident organist at Turner’s in Northampton for 22 years and musical director at Wicksteed Park in Kettering until 2008.

He now plays for clubs across the country.

The committee will once again dress up in professional costumes to reflect the year’s theme, which is different year on year.

The concert starts at 2.30pm with doors opening at 1pm.

Entry is by ticket only and tickets priced £6 are available from Peter Naulls on 01427 615265.
