Autumn Shades

A limited number of tickets are now available for our ever popular annual ‘Autumn Shades’ event to be held at our Shaw showrooms on Saturday 4th October 2014 when Ian Tracey will be playing once again. The draft programme for the day is below.

Tickets are £10 per person; all of which goes to the Liverpool Cathedral organ appeal. As I am sure you will agree, this is tremendous value for money for such an event. As in previous years food and drink will be provided free of charge during the day. If you would like to request tickets, and in order to help the day’s events run smoothly, payment in advance would be appreciated. This can be by cheque, made payable to ‘Liverpool Cathedral Foundation (Organ Appeal)’ and sent to Makin Organs Ltd, Sovereign House, 30 Manchester Road, Shaw OL2 7DE; calling us on 01706 888 100 to pay by debit card or making a bank transfer to Makin Organs Ltd, sort code 60-20-11, account 88310787. We will send out your personalised ticket(s) nearer the time.

If applicable, please consider using Gift Aid to make your donation enabling Liverpool Cathedral Foundation to claim tax relief of 25p on every pound you give. In this case, please pay by cheque and ask us for the declaration form to complete.

During the intervals, our increasing selection of sheet organ music from various publishers, including of course our own, will be available for purchase, as will our latest line in organ shoes. Jan and Bill Wolfenden will be selling items from their Liverpool Cathedral organ supporters stall.
