A feast of Christmas music awaits visitors to St Albans Organ Theatre this Saturday (6) which is hosting two Christmas concerts.

The matinee and evening performances at the theatre in Camp Road feature international concert star and recording theatre organist Nicholas Martin.

He began studying piano when he was nine but switched to the organ two years later when he visited Blackpool and heard the Tower Ballroom Wurlitzer – one of the most famous and widely heard theatre pipe organs in the world – thanks to Reginald Dixon who was resident there for 40 years from 1930.

Since his first visit to Blackpool Tower Ballroom, Nicholas has spent several summer seasons playing there and has presented sell-out concerts in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and throughout Europe and the UK.

The concerts start at 2.30pm and 7.30pm and ticket prices are adults £10 and children 11 and under £5.

Although some may be available at the door on the day, tickets can be reserved in advance via email on
