Covid-19 Update

Following the Government’s latest advice on Covid-19, the COS has decided, with regret, not to proceed with any scheduled April events.

The well-being of our members, visitors, performers, officers and workers is of paramount importance, and we note the recent recommendation that large gatherings should be avoided.

The position around the COS Districts for the next two months is as follows:

Southern District – April concert at the Troxy, London E1 and May concert at St John Vianney Church, Clayhall both cancelled.

Midlands & Wales District – April and May concerts at Fentham Hall, Hampton-in-Arden both cancelled.

Northern District – April concert at Victoria Hall, Saltaire cancelled; May concert under review.

Please note also that private practice on all COS organs has been suspended until further notice.

We will issue another update towards the end of April.

Best wishes,

Simon Gledhill, COS Chairman

Out in force today and delight to be a part of the Bloomsbury Organ Day. Why not drop in to the Central Baptist Church and say hello!

🎄 From all at the Cinema Organ Society, we wish you a very happy Christmas!

We hope you've enjoyed our 'virtual advent calendar' for the past 24 days and thanks once again to all who contributed. Special thanks to Damon Cox, Aaron Hawthorne and the COS archivist who made most of these posts possible, Nigel Laflin.

We don't intend on stopping with the "throwbacks" so do stick around to see what we post each week in the new year!

🎄It’s Day 24 of the COS Advent Calendar!

We thought we’d give you something to enjoy, perhaps by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate in hand tonight: here’s a clip from a broadcast made by Reginald Dixon at the Wurlitzer of the Tower Ballroom, Blackpool, on 23/12/58. Enjoy some pictures of Mr Dixon’s appearances at various organs too!
