For those who have not yet read through the programme, perhaps I should point out that John Mander, our host, will himself will be presenting an illustrated talk "An Organ Builder's Experiences" and this would be a great opportunity to show him our support.

I went to last year's event at Bloomsbury and will be going again to this one. Enough activity to make it worth the journey to London.
