Entrance to organ recitals is free with a retiring collection at the end. We now offer live-console video projection (with thanks to a generous sponsorship by Oakridge Executive Medicine Ltd), so the audience is able to watch the organist perform live. Hearing is believing with our organ and we look forward to welcoming you at one of our concerts.
