Young organists brave elements for Newcastle event

The magnificent organ in Newcastle’s City Hall attracted more than 30 youngsters to January's "Raise Your Game" day, arranged by the Royal College of Organists and Newcastle & District Society of Organists.

The youngsters braved the snow and ice to make the most of this fantastic opportunity, coming from as far afield as Barnard Castle, Hexham and Edinburgh.

The day was launched by City Hall manager, Peter Brennan, who enthused over the history of the Hall and its famous, locally built Harrison & Harrison organ. It is hoped that there will be many more events of this kind in the future, providing impetus and funds to care for this important national treasure.
