Organ recital at St Mary’s SEC Hamilton

ORGAN RECITAL ON MONDAY 19th AUGUST 2019 AT 6.00pm

On Monday 19th August we are hosting a 45 minute organ recital by Shrewsbury Abbey organist Nigel Pursey.  This is one of a series of recitals he is playing during his End2End Cycling and Organ Playing challenge, cycling the 990 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats with recitals at four stage end points.  This challenge is to raise funds for the Shrewsbury Abbey Organ Appeal  –  the Abbey’s fine 1911 Hill organ needs restoring and completing and money has still to be raised fully to fund the work.  Entry is free but there will be a retiring collection.
