Declan Poole ready to perform on Mighty Compton

Solihull Editorial 26th Mar, 2023   0

AN ORGANIST who was inspired by a trip to Blackpool will be tickling the Mighty Compton Cinema Organ ivories.

Declan Poole will be performing at Fentham Hall on Marsh Lane in Hampton in Arden on April 2.

The winner of the ATOS UK Young Theatre Organist of the Year award started playing the piano but at the age of eight during a trip to Blackpool’s Tower Ballroom he took an interest in the theatre organ.

He has played over 50 of the UK’s theatre organ installations and his concert programmes are a varied mix of popular music, including many theatre organ favourites.

His interest in the theatre pipe organ is not just restricted to playing them as he is actively involved in the restoration and reinstallation of several instruments.

The organ is installed beneath the stage and will rise in true Blackpool fashion.

For this concert doors will open at 1.30pm with curtain up at 2.30pm.

Admission £10 cash on the door, including interval refreshments and parking.

For more telephone the District Secretary on 01564 794778 or visit The Fentham Hall Compton facebook page.
