Phase One underway

Home » Phase One underway
Leicester Church Organ

The first phase of our long-planned Organ restoration will be beginning immediately after Easter. The Organ Repairers will be taking away various parts from inside the organ, to renew and repair them in their workshop. At the same time, scaffolding will be going up over the pulpit and choir gallery, so that the cracks in the arch can be sorted out, and the whole of that area redecorated.

The Scaffolding will be there for several weeks, and the phase-one works should be complete by the end of April. We will then have a pause, during which we have an organ concert by Nigel Ogden on Saturday 21th May at 3 p.m, and various bicentenary events, with the phase two works beginning later in the summer.
