Edington Organ Project

Edington Priory
It is that time of year, organisations are gearing up for the BIG GIVE, donations made on-line between 10am on Thursday December 6 and 5pm on Saturday December 8 will be doubled by sponsorship raised by the Big Give. Edington Organ Project is aiming to raise £3000 for their new organ at Edington Priory in Wiltshire.

Currently they have £398, 771 of the £437, 041 needed. The new organ at Edington Priory will not only serve the parish but will transform the abilities of the Edington Music Festival to incorporate the organ into the music making.


For 2013 there will not only be a new organ, but a new director for the festival, as Ashley Grote the Festival Director has stepped down because he has taken the post of Director of Music at Norwich Cathedral. The new director of the festival is Ben Nicholas who is Director of Music at Merton College Chapel, Oxford.

Incidentally, the old Edington Priory Organ is available, it is item 364 on the British Organ Building website.
