Events

The Society runs an active calendar of events from educational to social, including workshops, masterclasses, visits to see and play interesting organs both at home and overseas as well as informal get togethers and our annual dinner. During the pandemic there were many online events using zoom, and more recently we have begun to meet in person again. As well as our own members and guests, members of neighbouring associations are welcome – please contact us if you are interested in attending.

See below for forthcoming and recent events, or look at archived events here.
