Autumn’s in the air, but there’s still a lot going on in and around the village. Here are some seasonal suggestions for time out:
Music for Woodhall welcomes one of the team of resident organists at the famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom. Born and educated in Wigan, Lancashire, John has been playing the organ since the age of 8 and he’s been at the Blackpool Tower since he took up the job at the age of 16, straight from school. John’s unique playing style means he is always in demand to both ballroom dancers and die hard fans of organ music.
Here are some things to do in the next few weeks. Weather permitting!
Come along to the Woodhall and District Gardeners’ Association annual Flower and Produce Show. It starts at 2pm, and the presentation of cups and prizes is scheduled for 3.45pm. Entry is £1, children free. Refreshments too!
It’s a shame that Budgens have removed their noticeboard, but there are still plenty of events on the others, so here’s our selection for the month ahead. Take your pick: a trip to the BBC Gardener’s World and Good Food Show, a Big Band Night, a Banovallum Brass Concert, organ music at St. Peter’s or a good old car boot sale. Up to you!
This month’s visiting organist at Music for Woodhall will be Ryan Edwards. “Ryan’s continued popularity on the circuit could be a result of his fresh approach to organ playing which is reflected in the variety of styles of music in his concert programme. He understands the need to awaken new interest in the organ especially in his generation by appealing to both traditional and modern tastes.” He will be on stage at St Peter’s Church Hall, Woodhall Spa, 7.30pm.

Howard has returned to the concert circuit with a new instrument, the Roland Atelier 350c portable organ which has all the big organ, jazz combo and orchestral voices to thrill the audience. He will be on stage at St Peter’s Church Hall, Woodhall Spa, 7.30pm. Contact Philip Groves 01526 353225. Website Continue reading →
