Since the late 19th century, St Paul’s Church has been at the heart of matters spiritual and pastoral in Daybrook.

When the church was built in 1896, Augustus Gern, a noted German organ builder, was commissioned to install a pipe organ in the new building and this instrument is still in regular use today.

As part of the church’s efforts to further involvement in the community, St.Paul’s Church will be showcasing the 1286 pipe organ in a series of recitals given by local notable organists.

The first of these recitals will take place on 20th May 2023 at 7:30pm, and will be given by Dr Colin Walsh. Dr Walsh it. He will be performing a varied programme that will appeal to everyone – whether familiar with pipe organ music or not.

Steve Cox, Co-organist at St Paul’s Church said “The organ has undergone a few renovations in the last 100 years, the most recent being in 1967, and the church’s ministry team has been closely involved in keeping this lovely instrument well-maintained ever since.

“This will be a wonderful opportunity to hear Dr Walsh showcase one of the finest parish church organs in Nottinghamshire.”

Tickets are £7.50pp (Concessions £5.00pp) and are available “on the door” or online via www.spd.church/organ
