Village marks organ centenary

St Hilda’s Church in Hinderwell is marking 100 years of the coming of its Wordsworth and Co pipe organ with a musical celebration.

The organ was originally owned by Selby Abbey, but has taken residence in Hinderwell’s Church for the past century.

Wordsworth and Co was a prestigious firm of pipe organ builders between 1866 and 1981, and their instruments can be found all over the world.

In celebration of this milestone, a concert of popular organ music will be performed by Stephen Maltby.

Organisers are inviting everyone to go and celebrate the power and majesty of this king instrument and its arrival in Hinderwell 100 years ago.

A video link will be screened at the front of the church, to give an inside peek into what is involved in operating the keyboards and pedals.

The concert will be held on Saturday at 7pm.

Tickets are priced at £5 (£2 for full-time students.)

Tickets prices includes a programme and light refreshments.

All proceeds made will go to the essential repairs needed for the church windows.
