Civic Hall Organ Removal - 24/09/16
Wolverhampton Civic Hall’s historic organ is to be relocated and restored to it its former glory.
The City of Wolverhampton Council plans have been approved by Historic England following months of discussions about the best way to preserve the heritage of the organ that dates back to 1938.
The Grade II-listed Civic Hall and Wulfrun Hall are undergoing a £14.4 million revamp to improve facilities. The organ sits in the roof of the Civic Hall and needs to be removed to enable better ventilation for fire safety and to make adjustments to the stage area in order to attract bigger shows to the venue.
Renowned organ specialist and city organist, Steve Tovey, has been appointed to supervise the removal of the organ and find it a new location, with the hope it can remain in Wolverhampton. For the full story: http://socsi.in/mK6pz
