The star of the show: an 80-year-old WurlitzerMusic from a classic Wurlitzer theatre organ will be the main attraction at a charity event taking place in Shrewsbury next week.

Shropshire Theatre Organ Trust and Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin will be holding the event on Tuesday 3 October at 2.00pm at The Buttermarket in Howard Street, Shrewsbury with proceeds going to both charities.

The Shropshire Theatre Organ Trust was set up in 1986 to preserve the rare Wurlitzer theatre organ, one of only a few still in public use today in the West Midlands. Regular concerts are held once a month for people to appreciate this 80-year-old musical instrument.

Heather Osborne, Chief Executive of Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin said: ‘We are delighted to be working with the Shropshire Theatre Organ Trust for this event. The Wurlitzer has an unusual sound, rather like the typical Blackpool experience, so if anyone wants to be transported to the seaside I would suggest they come along on the 3 October and listen to this recital.’

The event costs just £3.50 per person, payable on the door, and refreshments will be available.
