Open Day at the Musical Museum
Discover the world of Mechanical Music and be entertained by the Mighty Wurlitzer
Be amazed by the Mighty Wurlitzer Experience featuring Chris Barber, the museum’s resident organist and Director of Music. Find out a little about the history of the instrument and see a short Silent film with Wurlitzer accompaniment. Chris will also play a selection of music from stage and screen together with tracks from his recent CDs to the back-drop of images projected on to the big screen in the concert hall.
Street instruments will be played on the lawn and you can enjoy a cold drink or ice cream at tables outside or in the River View café. There is a small exhibition outlining the move from the nearby St. George’s Church and highlights of ten years in the present site. Children’s activities include an art table and a Children’s gallery trail.
