News – The Organist Entertains, 2006

Published in January 2006

Acclaimed organist and Radio 2 star Nigel Ogden has become our latest Patron.

Nigel, who started playing at the age of 12, discovered the instrument through his father, who was a church organist. But he really got hooked when the family made trips to see Reginald Dixon play the Wurlitzer in the Blackpool Tower Ballroom.

So it’s fitting that Nigel will be performing for our first Annual Organ Day on Saturday May 6, playing the organs in the venues where the late R.H.J Dixon used to perform.

You can hear Nigel every Tuesday on BBC Radio 2 at 8pm.
