The Organ Celebration is a free event with a retiring collection to celebrate all of the the hard work which Harrison and Harrison have undertaken in restoring our beautiful Father Willis Organ. This event is to celebrate nearly two years of roof works being completed with classical favourites from the Lincoln Cathedral Choir and Cathedral Organists, Colin Walsh, Jeffrey Makinson and Hilary Punnett. We encourage you to come to this event where you will experience the world famous Father Willis Organ being played to its full potential, accompanied by the Lincoln Cathedral Choir.
