NEWS UPDATE – December 2017


Check out this exciting news in the link below.

Hello Friends…

Some exciting news before Christmas!


Our builders, Commres Contractors, have commenced construction of the percussion chamber at the rear of the stage and the console pit at the front of the stage in the Playhouse Theatre.   We have ordered the new lift for the organ console from Phoenix Elevators; date of installation has yet to be confirmed. 


To our dismay our funding application to The Trusts Community Foundation for this work was declined.  This decision was about to destroy our efforts to reinstall.  Thankfully there are some good people out there.  A loyal supporter for many years has offered the Trust a Loan on favourable terms which we have accepted.  The Loan along with your generous donations will get this vital part of the Project completed.


It’s looking good.  Thank you all for your continuing support and patience.  It’s very much appreciated.





Help us to preserve our Wurlitzer - to make your donation towards the installation of the
Wurlitzer organ into its new home.
