Organ Renewal Project at Leeds Town Hall

Work on the renewal of the Town Hall organ is well under way. Apart from the massive front pipes, which are stored on the floor of the stalls awaiting redecoration, the organ has been completely removed to Nicholson & Co’s workshop in Malvern.

Renovation of the existing pipes is progressing well, and many new parts and components have been delivered and manufactured. We need your support for this exciting project so please visit Leeds Town Hall for more information, and you can see pictures of the work in progress at Nicholson Organs.

Thank you.
