The Objective of the Ashton Hall Organ Restoration Project  is:’the promotion and restoration of the historic concert pipe organ in Lancaster Town Hall: “This instrument remains one of the few in its original state and clearly demonstrates the outstandingly high quality of craftsmanship, tonal voicing and finishing by Norman & Beard during the 1900’s and beyond. As such, the Ashton Hall Concert Organ is an irreplaceable masterpiece equivalent to, if not superior to, any instrument produced by rival companies at the time. It is simply a ‘lost//forgotten National Musical Treasure’ [Roger Fisher]”.’ ALERT ‘Most concerts are given in the Ashton Hall in Lancaster Town Hall but when this venue is in use for other events the concerts are presented in Lancaster Priory.‘

Hull City Hall offers a wide range of events each year, hosting top international names in contemporary live music as well as headline comedy acts, the world’s leading orchestras, celebrities, adventurers, drama, musicals, opera and more ... In 1911, the organ, built by Forster and Andrews of Hull, was installed in the main hall. This was controversial as some considered it too big for the space and it was only allowed to go ahead after a Government inquiry. Today it remains one of the largest working organs in use in the country.’
