Week 155 – Portslade: The Final Curtain

On this weeks show we say farewell to the mighty Portslade Compton/Christie. John Mann has the honours of playing the last concert on the organ in its current home and although it was sad that the organ would not sing out again in the hall, a new home has been found up the road at Ditchling on a farm no less! David Houlgate and his team deserve a massive hand for installing and maintaining this organ which has been playing in the hall for the last 28 years!

If you have enjoyed this, why not donate?
