To celebrate the 80th birthday of the largest original Compton in the land, we invite you to our Open Day event featuring:
* Special interactive demonstration with mobile camera in the chambers and an organist at the console; showing on-screen, describing and demonstrating the organ's 50 ranks and many features.
* Insights and demonstrations of Compton's ingenious original technologies including the Melotone, luminous stops and the remarkable electrical combination data memory.
* Short open-console sessions for players to try out the beast for themselves.
* Performance by Richard Hills - a master of this uniquely versatile civic-hall instrument.
There should be plenty of Compton Boffins on hand to answer any questions you've ever had about the man and his instruments.
