The Father Willis organ in the Concert Hall

The Father Willis organ is the centrepiece of the Town Hall’s beautifully restored Concert Hall. It was originally built for the Small Town Hall, now known as the Victoria Hall. It is significant as the most unaltered example of a Father Willis concert organ to survive in this country. The acoustics of the Concert Hall are regarded as the perfect complement to the organ.
