Diss Organ Festival
Announcement - Cancelation of the 2020 Event
The Diss Organ Festival has taken the very difficult decision to cancel this year's event which would have been held on the 16th-17th May 2020.
The health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors and volunteers is our most important priority and we therefore feel this is the most appropriate decision to take at this time. However, we are very mindful that the current situation is changing rapidly and important decisions are being made almost daily. For now, the plan is to move Diss Organ Festival to the weekend of 15th & 16th May 2021.
We have had a very positive response for this year's Festival and had achieved a Heritage Lottery Grant and grants from, Diss Town Council, Diss Cyclothon, Norfolk Arts Fund, Diss Town Team, to make it even better so everyone involved is saddened by the necessary postponement.
All being well, we are looking forward to seeing you again next year.

The Diss Organ Festival IS BACK!
Back by popular demand, the largest event of its kind in the UK. The Diss Organ Festival will return to this picturesque Norfolk market town, on Sunday 16th May 2021 from 10.00 til 17.00.
From famous British fairground organs, magnificent mobile concert instruments to beautiful Dutch street organs, the highways and byways of Diss, along with its popular Park, will be alive with the joyful sound of over 50 mechanical music machines. Also musical boxes in the Corn Hall and hand turned instruments in Cobbs Yard.
The Park will have a display of vintage vehicles with veteran traction engines in steam, and the Theatre Organ Club will be staging a nostalgic 1920s silent movie to dramatic organ accompaniment, recreating the early cinema before soundtracks were incorporated in the film.
