Organised by: Music for All at St Mary and St Giles

This is a golden opportunity for you to play, with help from our organ volunteer team, those wow chords on the pipe organ.  Budding organists and pianists of all ages – please bring your favourite sheet music to try on the pipe organ.

You can also find out about the Silent Movie night, demonstrating movie heritage and featuring live pipe organ accompaniment with the films. There will also be an exhibition about the Willis organ telling the story of pipe organ music at St Mary & St Giles, Stony Stratford in the past, present and future.

No pre-booking required- drop-in event.

Refreshments from 10:00 am, light lunch on sale from 12 noon. Donations to the Organ Maintenance Fund welcomed.

Access: The organ console is in the gallery which is reached by stairs, so this opportunity to play the organ is unfortunately not accessible for wheelchair users, who can access the church via the Parish Hall to listen to the organ.

On-site accessible toilets. Hearing loop. Assistance dogs welcome. Pushchair/pram friendly.

Location: The church is on the corner of Church Street and the High Street in the centre of Stony Stratford.  Free parking nearby in Market Square, Horn Lane Car park or behind the Cock Hotel.
