Post subject:  Cotton: Annual Fairorgan Enthusiast's Day 2nd October

The 25th Annual Fairground Organ Enthusiasts’ Day will take place at the Mechanical Music Museum, Charity Trust No 801863, Blacksmith Road Cotton Stowmarket IP14 4QN on Sunday 2nd October 2011, with gates open at 10.00am.

Following the format established in the 1970s by the Cotton Exhibition, this is the largest annual gathering of mechanical organs in East Anglia.

In addition to the Museum’s own collection of mechanical, street and café organs which will be demonstrated during the day, there will be twenty visiting organs drawn from across a wide geographical area.

The visiting organs will be arranged both inside and outside the Museum building and will be heard playing throughout the day

The organs vary from small hand turned table–top instruments to large trailer and lorry-mounted organs.

A vintage traction engine will be in steam on the Museum’s forecourt.

There will be a Sales Stall in aid of Museum funds and a dealer in mechanical music- related items will also be in attendance.

Light refreshments will be available.

Admission is £5.00 for adults and £1.00 for children

Further information is available from Mr Jonathan Ling on 077088 90728
