When the theatre was pulled down (ca. 1970), the instrument passed into the ownership of Joe Churms, a local enthusiast. He died two years ago and left the organ to anyone who was prepared to give it a home and maintain it. The offer was taken up by the Opera House here in Cape Town and has now been installed. The opening concert is later this month.

It was installed in the early 90’s, played for the opening night and is now forgotten. But it is complete and in good condition.

It doesn’t make a sound because the electrical supply cuts off the moment it is switched on – so there is a short circuit somewhere.
