Save our Historic Organ

Why we need your help

Our organ at St MellitusChurch, in Tollington Park, is of unique historical and cultural value as an instrument which was built to commemorate men associated with the parish who fought in the First World War.

We have recently restored the organ with support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF).  The NLHF supported phase of The St Mellitus Organ Restoration Project is now over, but you can still make a donation to contribute to the legacy of this 'king of instruments', to remember the men who went to war and give the local community and wider public access to one of London's finest organs.

The instrument was commissioned in 1918 to commemorate the 221 men associated with the parish who fought in the First World War.  It is registered on the British Institute of Organ Studies register and has a Grade II historic organ certificate.  The ten-month restoration saw the organ restored in time for the centenary of its original dedication on 12th December 2020.

Alongside the restoration, the project delivered a programme of historical, educational and musical activities.  To find out more, hear the organ, watch films about the restoration and the stories of the soldiers and see a recording of the live-streamed centenary concert visit: www.stmellitusorgan.co.uk

Thank you for your support and enthusiasm to date.
