Due to the escalating situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) our Founders Day Gala (5th April) event has been postponed. Please keep an eye on social media for the new date.
The museum will continue to stay closed until a later date (yet to be confirmed).
The songs of praise event next weekend (29th March) has been cancelled completely.
Thursford is committed to the global effort of protecting the most vulnerable, staff and the larger community and reducing the spread of this nasty virus.

🎄 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!
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!
