4th October 2020, Fair Ground Organ Day 10am-5pm
Long before the invention of recorded sound, many mechanical devises existed for producing live music without the need for musicians.
The Grange Musical Collection is a unique, collection of self-playing musical instruments. Educational talks and demonstions by appointment or why not come and visit the Collection on one of our open days.
New to the collection
We are absolutely delighted to share with you that the museum has a fantastic new addition on loan from Barnaby Newton, It is his replica 89 key Marenghi.. it sounds absolutely fantastic and we will be travelling it to various events as well as having it on show at the Grange musical collection. Thank you for trusting it with us Barnaby We feel very honoured.
Fair Ground Organ Open Day 2020 (all being well with covid19) is on!
Sunday the 4th October 10am – 5pm
We won’t be doing prebooking and it’ll be first come first served until we reach our limit on numbers on the site, but once you’re in we’ll be working as hard as we can to make your museum experience as great as ever, whilst ensuring everyone is kept completely safe. And if we’re full when you arrive, you can always come back later to see if we’re quieter and can let you in.
You’ll need to wear a face covering in the museum, (unless you have a valid exemption or you’re under 11) And of course we’ll be asking everyone to maintain social distancing when around the site...but we’ve got plenty of space and most of it will be outdoors.
Finally, we’ll need a contact name and number for someone in your group so we can do our bit for the NHS Track & Trace scheme which we’ll ask you for when you entre.
