This event has been and gone.
Empress Ballroom Extravaganza
Nigel Ogden will be showcasing the 'new' Wurlitzer organ in concert. Nigel has been playing theatre organ since he was 12 years old after many family holidays to Blackpool where he heard the legendary Reginald Dixon at the Tower Ballroom Wurlitzer, an instrument which Nigel has recorded many times.
Since those heady days, Nigel has gone on to record and perform on classical and theatre organs across the globe.
This will be the first Theatre organ concert in the Empress Ballroom in 50 years, and the first concert to be presented on the new Empress Ballroom Wurlitzer.
This event marks 50 years since the removal of the original Empress Ballroom Wurlitzer. A second event will be an evening of ballroom dancing at the Empress Ballroom to music by Cameron Lloyd, David Lobban and Alec Walters.
Concert organist and star of BBC radio's The Organist Entertains.
